SYNOPSIS

     configuration file:

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.
