+To use an ALS-007 sound card under Linux, enable the following options in the
sound configuration section of the kernel config:
- 100% Sound Blaster compatibles (SB16/32/64, ESS, Jazz16) support
- FM synthesizer (YM3812/OPL-3) support

Set the "I/O base for SB", "Sound Blaster IRQ" and "Sound Blaster DMA" (8 bit -
either 0, 1 or 3) to the values used in your particular installation (they
should match the values used to configure the card using isapnp). The

requires a separate IRQ for the MPU-401, so don't specify -1 here). (Note
