Hmmm, I've rebooted the machine (yes I know it sounds like a Windows
trick...) and even after respecifying the full path of the binfmt_aout.o
module is doesn't want recognise it anymore

This is in my /etc/conf.modules file (among other things)

options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=0 mpu_io=0x330
alias binfmt-0064 /lib/modules/2.2.14-5.0/fs/binfmt_aout.o
alias sound-slot-0 sb

After the reboot, the audio server doesn't want to work.
Does it matter what order these options go in?
Oh well, back to the drawing board....

Like clean air, water and food, earth is a comodity:
Take good care of what little there is left.
