		The sounddevice should be: pcm0: <SigmaTel STAC9721/23 AC97 Codec>

The ASUS M2400N Notebooks have a SigmaTel sound device which worked perfect with 5.0R and 5.1R. Since 5.2R it doesn't work anymore.
		The 5.1R dmesg says:	pcm0: <SigmaTel STAC9721/23 AC97 Codec>
		The 5.2R dmesg says:	pcm0: <Intel ICH4 (82801DB)> port 0xe100-0xe13f,0xe000-0xe0ff at device 31.5 on pci0
					pcm0: unable to map IO port space
					device_probe_and_attach: pcm0 attach returned 6
		I have feedback that it also didn't work in CURRENT December 2003.
		Maybe this has something to do with the ACPI changes.
		I also heard that newer models have other sound devices.

Install 5.2R and add 'device pcm' to your kernel config.
