(re: No sound ) With a PCI card such as the SB Live!, 16 bits has to be emulated. The earlier Live cards would install the emulation with the DOS drivers. The newer cards no longer have DOS drivers. In XP, to have sound in a DOS application or game, direct hardware access has to be emulated.
XP has very limited sound card support for this. The best way to add sound to your old DOS games in XP is with VDMSound. VDMS is free and works like a charm, just be sure to also install the VDMS Launchpad as well.
