I've played a little with the sound and soundcore modules, but if I rmmod
both of them, and then do 'modprobe sb', none of them reappear.

Also, if I do 'modprobe sound', I'm noticing it's not loading.  Hrmm...

Not yet.  I tried "#debian" and "#linuxhelp" on IRC, and then tried vox-tech,
since everyone's so helpful here. ;^)

But, but, but!  I've had it for 6 years and it works 'great!'  ;^)

I guess I'll have to visit the local Fry's. :^)
