> what was the last adminly type thing that you did to this machine?

I ran "netconfig" (one of the RedHat X11-based configy thingers) to
set my IP for our firewall.  Not sure why that would affect sound/IRQ.
Perhaps it's a Lilo thing (or something else redhat's configer thingies
might touch)

4.0's been in for over 4 months (I installed it at my old place :) )

Will do. (At work now)

Ok, thanks!
