  Author  Subject: no sound with Mandrake 8 on Compaq P166

I have no sound after a relatively smooth installation.
cat/proc/interrupts showed that the sound and video each use IRQ 9. I
think this may be why there is no sound, but then, I'm not completely
sure. Is there a way to change the Irq for one of the devices without
moving jumpers on the cards?

I also can not figure out how to access the bios on this Compaq.
I've searched the net, tried every F key there is. Would a Linux
installation affect access to the bios? Or, does Compaq require the
use of some special diskette?

thanks for your help
