mr_bigmouth_502, in pure DOS, the IBM 3D sound card has the best SB emulation of all the models, followed by the Mediavision card wich des only for real mode games.
Both the Newmedia Wavjammer and I/O Magic Tempo cards have direct support in some Pentium-era games (mostly games that use the Miles Sound System).
If you intend to play DOS games in Win9x, the Eigermedia/Fujitsu/Argosy cards (based on ES1688) offer SB DMA emulation, maybe the cards based on 1688P such as the Ratoc ones do as well.
The Wavjammer (and combo Sound/SCSI) does WSS-SB emulation in Win9x.
The Wami Box does work in Win9x/XP and offer SB/Pro digital audio in games, no OPL2/3 music though.
But you can use GM and up to a 16MB Soundfont, my post about this card is not far from the middle of the first page...
archsan, the SCP-55 only has official drivers for DOS/Win3.x and Win9x.
The third party Linux driver is for the kernel 2.0.21, it works on 2.0.36 according to the readme, old stuff...
It also needs pcmcia-cs-3.0.6.
I thought those USB PCMCIA worked only with memory card adapters and flashram cards...
If you think of using a PCMCIA card on a desktop, you better use an ISA or PCI adapter.
If you were thinking of a recent laptop/netbook, an USB/MIDI adapter or a SB live should be better, no?
