Well I don't have any experience with Drake, but this might at least allow you to boot up.
Go into the motherboard bios and temporarily disbale the onboard sound, midi and gameport. That might allow you to boot. Then go in and disable alsa so it doesn't load on boot.
I don't know how well Linux currently supports Via's KT333 chipset onboard sound. You might be better off for now getting yourself an add in sound card. You will get better sound anyway.
