Well, I basically discovered a patch for the 2.2.* kernel (I assume you
found it too... I have version 1.6 - try http://www.cmedia.com.tw/e_dload1.htm), 
and for me, the only mp3 player that seems to work (although it seems to
be a little unstable sometimes) is mpg123 - I use a gqmpeg interface for
my desktop :)

Perhaps the patch hasn't been installed correctly - I know it took a
little fiddling (still can't get even wav players or mod players to
work, and the midi module is just a write-off)...

I think I'll be splurging and getting a new motherboard :) Does anyone
know anything about the Abit BH-6 ones (for a PIII 450)?
