Fun fact. While the ESS Solo-1 is generally very compatible in older boards, I have experienced it failing to work in some modern (Socket 775) motherboards in both DOS and Windows.
This is getting offtopic: Yep, it needs PCI-DMA support from chipset, if you don't have it then it's problems. All VIA chipsets has it. One of my all-arounders is Asus A8V, Athlon 64 x2, Radeon 3850 AGP & Voodoo3 PCI and SB X-Fi & Solo-1. The thing is that I can play all (non-speed sensitive) DOS-games with sound and also Crysis with one PC.
