What is the model/make of your sound card?

In FreeBSD, for a PnP soundcard, all you have to do is compile a new kernel
with the following option:

# For PnP/PCI sound cards
device          pcm

After that if your soundcard is not detected, then you should try looking for
other options to use in /sys/i386/conf/LINT

From too much love of living,
From hope and fear set free,
We thank with brief thanksgiving,
Whatever gods may be,
That no life lives forever,
That dead men rise up never,
That even the weariest river winds somewhere safe to sea.
