    SOund card fun:Sound Blaster Audigy OEM also Radeon 9600Pro

    Hi, I'm new to the forums, and i'm also new to the Linux world, so excuse me if i'm slow. I installed the Latest version of Knoppix to my HDD, i have it all set up but i have one problem thats bugging me, and i;m sure a few of you might have seen this problem before and can maybe share some insight on it. I have a Sound Blaster Audigy OEM card, and it started off with everytime i boot i would receive this message:
    Sound server informational message:
    Error while initializing the sound driver:
    device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device)
    The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

    i would alwats get that message.. my friend tapped into my kernel, and noticed that basicly my module for the soundcard EMU101k something, was in the kernel but couldn't be enabled, no matter what he did... can anyone here think/know of a reason why?

    ANd my last question is can anyone point me to Radeon 9600Pro retail box drivers? and how to install them please? thank you so much for your time and for your help

    I've heard that some OEMs like Dell use soundcards (some kind of audigy, iirc) that have to have a dell specific windows driver installed because they have a pci-id thats different from the retail cards; this could be a reason for things not working right, but I'm not too sure about that! a simple lspci -v should give you the pci-id, do a google search and see what it turns out like.
