Audio on Dell Inspiron 3500 Sub_title: configuring audio card on Dell Inspiron 3500
Has anyone been able to configure audio in Puppy 2.17 on a Dell Inspiron 3500? I've tried a number of different things in alsaconf with no success. Alsaconf finds the nm256 card, but it does not work (no sound at all). I've seen some suggestions here and there to try some of the legacy drivers, but I can't get them to work either.

solution for audio on Dell Inspiron 3500
I found this http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-284405.html on configuring sound in Unbuntu and tried it by cutting and pasting the suggested settings to the end of my modprobe.conf file, commenting out any other sound related config and setting the sound card to auto in the BIOS.
I restarted the system and it works - sort of. The volume is fairly low and the sound is choppy, but it will play sounds. I'm not getting any sound from Flash in Sea Monkey. Any ideas on that would be appreciated.

Audio Sub_title: No sound with neomagic sound nm256
I use a Thinkpad 390 with the same neomagic chip. Someone out there suggested using the opl3sa2 driver. I get sound with any Linux distro with this legacy driver. Works for me in the setup wizard on all puppies.
