+Documentation for the ESS1868F AudioDrive PnP sound card
+The ESS1868 sound card is a PnP ESS1688-compatible 16-bit sound card.
+It should be automatically detected by the Linux Kernel isapnp support when you
+load the sb.o module. Otherwise you should take care of:
+ * The ESS1868 does not allow use of a 16-bit DMA, thus DMA 0, 1, 2, and 3
+ may only be used.
+ * isapnptools version 1.14 does work with ESS1868. Earlier versions might
+ not.
+ * Sound support MUST be compiled as MODULES, not statically linked
+ into the kernel.
+NOTE: this is only needed when not using the kernel isapnp support!
+For configuring the sound card's I/O addresses, IRQ and DMA, here is a
+sample copy of the isapnp.conf directives regarding the ESS1868:
+(CONFIGURE ESS1868/-1 (LD 1
+(IO 0 (BASE 0x0220))
+(IO 1 (BASE 0x0388))
+(IO 2 (BASE 0x0330))
+(DMA 0 (CHANNEL 1))
+(INT 0 (IRQ 5 (MODE +E)))
+(ACT Y)
+(for a full working isapnp.conf file, remember the
+at the beginning and the
+at the end.)
+In this setup, the main card I/O is 0x0220, FM synthesizer is 0x0388, and
+the MPU-401 MIDI port is located at 0x0330. IRQ is IRQ 5, DMA is channel 1.
+After configuring the sound card via isapnp, to use the card you must load
+the sound modules with the proper I/O information. Here is my setup:
+# ESS1868F AudioDrive initialization
+/sbin/modprobe sound
+/sbin/insmod uart401
+/sbin/insmod sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=-1
+/sbin/insmod mpu401 io=0x330
+/sbin/insmod opl3 io=0x388
+/sbin/insmod v_midi
+opl3 is the FM synthesizer
+/sbin/insmod opl3 io=0x388
