    Question SoundCard

    I recently switched MoBo's/Cases on my Mp3computer, as the other case was just all chopped up, But, the problem is, it had a proprietary Mobo with onboard Audio.
    The only Soundcard I have is some Generic Piece of Crap, and MPxplay wouldn't use it.
    Does anyone know of another DOS mp3player that will use it, or would you be willing to sell me a SB16 soundcard? (in around the 10$ region w/S&H)
    Also, Has anyone succeeded in making Linux boot in less than 30 or so seconds?
    Because then I might switch to that, and I know Redhat will detect the Generic SoundCard I have.
    Also, Please Check out the head-Unit I want to buy and tell me if it is Disant? http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S...DCZ117&o=M&a=0

    Also, has anyone ever experimented with MP3 players that are on a single board w/instintaneous boot up? I know there was one I read about that used a Fat32 HD and had a chip that decoded the Mp3's?

    I've got my Linux system booting in about 30 seconds (of which at least 20 is wasted by my brain-dead BIOS ), but I had to basically strip everything out and do my own /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.

    If you're the lucky owner of the "right" mobo, you can burn Linux into flash and have it come up in 2 seconds. Check http://www.linuxbios.com. I would _LOVE_ to do this, but my mobo is not supported...

    Just a stupid question

    If you do burn linux into flash, does this mean you can only have linux on the comp, you couldnt have dual boot windows/linux on same comp ?

    Technically, it should be possible to have Linux act as a boot loader and boot Windows. Though I dunno how Windows would get along without the original BIOS. I don't know if anyone's done that yet... Anyway, if you're hardcore enough to flash your Linux, you have no use for Windows anymore. I'd do it in a snap if I had the right mobo.
