BUGS

     The Forte Media FM801 chipset is a sort of PCI bridge, not an actual
     sound controller, making it possible to have soundless support.  One
     problem is that both chipsets, with and without sound support, use the
     same PCI ID.  This makes it impossible to determine which one is
     installed.
