	The really frustrating thing is that my situation is supposedly 
uncontroversially easy to get working.  But I would much rather have sound 
than not.  As I said, ALSA comes with my distro, so I'm not sure what-all I 
need to change in addition to getting new OSS drivers installed.  Any help 
would probably be essential to any success to which I could look forward.
