dual sound cards for linux
I have a diamond sonic s90 sound card that works great under windows. I am happy with it and don't want to replace it, but I have tried and tried and can't get it to cooperate with red hat 6.0 (my box is dual bootable). I can get an old soundblaster card from a friend for real cheap that I am sure would work with linux, but could I have both cards in my system and use one for windows, and the other for Linux??
You sure can. Just install it like normal, and make sure that you go into the "Multimedia" section of the Control Panel in Win9x and set the default recording and playback devices to the card you want. You'll also have to make sure that games detect and use the card you want as well. That might be the difficult part.
Also if you go into your sound properties screen you can tell windows to 'do not map through this device'. This should help eliminating any problems with your games.
