Distribute the IRQs so fewest possible PCI slots share IRQs.  Since the
serial and parallel ports are disabled, IRQs 3, 4, 5, 7, and 9 should be
free.  Try to assign PCIs to those IRQs if you can.

If any of the PCI slots share IRQs, try it out, and if it still doesn't
work, try a different IRQ-sharing combination.

Good luck!


PS: What software are you using under Linux to test the sound card?
