I failed to find that file on the CD but got 2pages of google on it that 
were no help to me being in sumpin like jigdo format. I did get the test 
sound working in Pidgin by changing the sound to plain beep and looking 
at my VIA sound chip it shows the alsa drivers (I think) and OSS and 
there is an open bug report on this. but was way over my head so I gonna 
sit back and watch the 'Now Working Matrix'.
Thanks a lot guys
