THE LAST WORD (I PROMISE)
In one last effort to tackle the Armada 1750 no-sound problem, I downloaded and installed DSL-N (with the 2.6.11 kernel). While it didn't find my sound card automatically, I was able to enter the "modprobe sb io=0x230 irg=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330" entry and then tried "tone://1000" in the xmms player and what do you know, I heard sound!
So, apparently dsl-2.4 doesn't install what I needed even when I tried to download it. I never could get the "sb" driver to load.
So now I am ready to end this post and I will mark the first entry as closed. Thanks Forum
