OK, I have loaded snd.ko. However I see no output in dmesg or
/var/log/messages. Does that mean that my sound card is not supported at
all? Is there a way to test if it's connected properly? Also when I
tried unloading the modules the machine rebooted. It wouldn't be a big
problem but it is also the firewall machine and it's not a good idea to
reboot it too often. How do I unload the modules properly?
