1	modprobe sound
2	insmod uart401
3	insmod sb ...
4	
5	This loads the driver for the Sound Blaster and assorted clones. Cards that
6	are covered by other drivers should not be using this driver.
7	
8	The Sound Blaster module takes the following arguments
9	
10	io		I/O address of the Sound Blaster chip (0x220,0x240,0x260,0x280)
11	irq		IRQ of the Sound Blaster chip (5,7,9,10)
12	dma		8-bit DMA channel for the Sound Blaster (0,1,3)
13	dma16		16-bit DMA channel for SB16 and equivalent cards (5,6,7)
14	mpu_io		I/O for MPU chip if present (0x300,0x330)
15	
16	sm_games=1	Set if you have a Logitech soundman games
17	acer=1		Set this to detect cards in some ACER notebooks
18	mwave_bug=1	Set if you are trying to use this driver with mwave (see on)
19	type		Use this to specify a specific card type
20	
21	The following arguments are taken if ISAPnP support is compiled in
22	
23	isapnp=0	Set this to disable ISAPnP detection (use io=0xXXX etc. above)
24	multiple=0	Set to disable detection of multiple Soundblaster cards.
25			Consider it a bug if this option is needed, and send in a
26			report.
27	pnplegacy=1	Set this to be able to use a PnP card(s) along with a single
28			non-PnP (legacy) card.  Above options for io, irq, etc. are
29			needed, and will apply only to the legacy card.
30	reverse=1	Reverses the order of the search in the PnP table.
31	uart401=1	Set to enable detection of mpu devices on some clones.
32	isapnpjump=n	Jumps to slot n in the driver's PnP table. Use the source,
33			Luke.
34	
35	You may well want to load the opl3 driver for synth music on most SB and
36	clone SB devices
37	
38	insmod opl3 io=0x388
39	
40	Using Mwave
41	
42	To make this driver work with Mwave you must set mwave_bug. You also need
43	to warm boot from DOS/Windows with the required firmware loaded under this
44	OS. IBM are being difficult about documenting how to load this firmware.
45	
46	Avance Logic ALS007
47	
48	This card is supported; see the separate file ALS007 for full details.
49	
50	Avance Logic ALS100
51	
52	This card is supported; setup should be as for a standard Sound Blaster 16.
53	The driver will identify the audio device as a "Sound Blaster 16 (ALS-100)".
