[linrad] RE: Red Hat 9

Hi Stan,

I Recently bought a laptop, a Toshiba Satellite 2450.

The computer comes with Windows installed, the hard disk
is in two partitions and I installed RedHat 9 on the second
partition without any problems.

The builtin sound seems to work fine, but I can not tell for 
sure because I have no software for the mixer of this lap-top
computer so I have no means of actually routing the D/A output
to the loudspeakers.

Yes. To me it looks fine:)

The hard disk is big enough for Windows and Linux and some
more systems if there is something else you would like.....

Hopefully you will get some information from others on
this list. You may also ask customer support at OSS if they have
drivers or if they plan to make drivers for these soundcards.
