    What type of sound card? If it's a sound blaster, you have to modify your autoexec.bat and config.sys file, and copy some drivers to your drive, IIRC.

        the ESS chipsets were renounded for their terrible sound support for DOS...... its very buggy at best sadly.... I would avoid it like the plague for DOS usage personally...

          My machine has ess sound built in. I noticed that it placed sound blaster enviroment variables and loaded sound blaster compitable drivers for dos automaticly. When I removed them from autoexec.bat and config.sys they where added automaticly when windows starts.

          The ESS sound does not have that great sound so I'm thinking of putting a AWE64 card or another good card into my puter.
