(re: re: re: Tech Help on Older Games..) Do you have the DOS drivers for your sound card installed? Your PCI sound card is a 32 bit card, and the old DOS games, even when running in a DOS box in windows, expects 16 bit access to the hardware. The DOS drivers will give you 16 bit emulation.
Another solution would be to try Vlad’s VDMSound for Win 9x,

but remember it is just in the alpha stage of development and not as well developed as the one for 2K and XP.
