Do you have any non-pnp ISA cards in the computer? If not, everything
should be automatic. I have a jumpered ISA modem (IRQ3) , and a jumpered
MGA/Parport card (IRQ 7) and even one jumpered SB sound card (IRQ 5).
PCI cards are always pnp.

Windows likes to assign all sound cards as IRQ 10. You can probably
change this manually to IRQ5 in Windows now and have it keep working.

In BL and/or in DSL? The latter is harder to figure out because it is
bigger. Therefore your question turned out to be BL-relevant.
There is an aumix for volume control if your speakers don't have that.
