It didn't give me the error message "MC'97 1 converters and GPIO not
ready (0xff00)" -- Of course, that could be caused by something else.

Nope...  Still doesn't work.  Thanks for your help, though.

Here's my modprobe.conf:


# Note: for use under 2.4, changes must also be made to modules.conf!
alias eth0 tulip
alias eth1 b44
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias usb-controller1 ehci-hcd

# had i810_audio
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install
sound-slot-0 && { /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1
|| :; }
remove sound-slot-0 { /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null
2>&1 || :; } ; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove
sound-slot-0


I changed "alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio" to "alias sound-slot-0
snd-intel8x0" after seeing yours and made a comment as to what it used
to be.  Everything else is the same as its been since I upgraded.
