1. Sound Card
Firstly everytime I load a sound program I get a /dev/dsp does not exist error. I'm using the Soundblaster Audigy.
The system picks up my network card but I can't get onto the network. If I click connect on the network properties thing then it tries for a while then fails.
Can anyone help with either of these things? I'm absolutely flummoxed!
