I am still trying to figure out why I need to modify it and add:
"hw.snd.default_unit=4" just to get sound to work on a card that works
perfectly under Windows sans modification. I have actually graduated

contemplate modifying the hardware on my systems. I have evolved to a
point way past "grumpy".
