I believe the soundblasters in dell machines are special in some kind, I
have a dell as well and the SB Live that came with it works fine under
windows, but does not work at all under FreeBSD, however I had an old
Live (exact same spec as the one that came with the machine) and it
works just fine, I have no idea what's different about the dell ones.
