Don't knock old ISA cards!

Don't knock old ISA cards!

Much of it need not change; the means by which one configures an ISA Sound Blaster card is pretty much as it always was - assuming one can find such a card and an ISA bus to plug it into.

Funny you mentioned ISA SoundBlaster cards. I just powered up my 16 year old Alpha AXPpci33 based system to see if a newer releases of a Linux distribution would still run on it. It contains an SoundBlaster 64 ISA card. This system is a real monster! :-) 166 MHz CPU, 96 MBytes memory. It feels pathetically slow these days.
