Can these parameters be set from a running system in some way, or must this
be done on powerup/reset?

Yes, I had that too, with my SB16 (ISA! Yay!) under Win2k (and Linux), if
the card was using 16bit DMA. 8bit DMA fixed that.

The current card is an "Ensoniq 5880 AudioPCI" (Soundblaster 128 or
something like that), and it worked just fine with win2k (while I had
that), and with Linux, too, as long as the OSS drivers were used. ALSA
inevitably starts to crackle after a while.

The only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes.
