Woo Hoo! Excellent!

They say "Red Bull gives you wings" Ha!

been configured to give its user wings!" (Yeah, I know it is bad.)

You may want to exmaine editing the file /etc/modules (assuming you have
it) and adding an entry for your sb module. You can add the args like you
did with the command line to the /etc/modules file and have them get
loaded on start. (With 2.4 series, issue with kerneld change, but I
*think* you can stil use /etc/modules for modules you want to have
loaded. (Someone else will prob correct me if I have this wrong.) :-)

(reading /etc/modules :)
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line.  Comments begin with
# a `#', and everything on the line after them are ignored.
# An entry named `auto' will cause the system to start kerneld immediately.
# Kerneld then loads modules on demand. `noauto' disables kerneld completely.

#some modules unrelated to the sound issue. Here just as an example file

#a sb module ref with the expected settings for your machine...
sb io=0x240 irq=10 dma=3 dma16=7 mpu_io=0x330

#others also unrelated...
