Hello again everyone!
Thanks to all that responded.
Here is where it stands.
1. The bootmanager issue is still an issue but I can work around it.
2. As for the sound card. I tried the kldload snd_driver and it forced a
reboot of my machine. Ah... Ok. I remembered that I had turned off "Plug N
Play OS" in my BIOS. I turned that back on and rebooted. kldload snd_driver
then ran just fine. But, no sound in KDE or Gnome.
I'm trying the custom kernal again now. The other thing I should mention is
that this computer has a funky internal modem with built in sound AND a
soundblaster type card.
I think that may be confusing things. As I'm networked and my iMac is the one
actually dialing out, I think I'll just remove the modem from this machine
and see where it goes from there.
