that's good, yes. Anyway I got a SATA, is even better for me :)
smaller better cable.

I solved it :) and I just wanted to write you as I received the mail.

I tried with the snd_viaxxxxx  as I supposed and it works greatly.
But most of all, as ever since my years of *nix ... *BSD is lovely,
to recompile a kernel you never need to freak out as with Linux.
and voilat:

pcm0: <VIA VT8237> port 0xc800-0xc8ff irq 22 at device 17.5 on pci0
pcm0: <Analog Devices AD1980 AC97 Codec>

now one last issue for me, is the Linux compatibility, but I think
that must be a problem, as it seems that the emulation works
only for i386 archs ! mhh !!

...and what about your machine ?
