Hello again - you guys were so helpful in sorting out my newbie-ness that i'm back!!

I've been playing around with linux for a couple of months now, and most things are going well, except that i can't get my USB zip drive to work (i'm giving up hope on this one) and i can't get my soundcard to work...

i've downloaded the EMU10K1 driver from the net and it compiles fine, but when i use
sndconfig --noprobe
to select the card, i get...

errors in modprobe program

/lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/emu10k1.0 init_module: device or module busy

/lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/emu10k1.0 insmod failed

/lib/modules/2.2.16-22/misc/emu10k1.0 insmod sound-slot-0 failed

so hmm... i'm sure its something trivial to most of you lot, but hey, help a newbie out again??
