Maybe while were on the subject of NT problems you could explain this.

Why in three separate installs of NT from a beta to the most recent
NTServer/BackOffice won't NT recognize my SoundBlaster 32? This is an
absolutely stock SoundBlaster 32, not a clone, in a Micron P-133.

In every install, NT says "no sound device installed/found," although, gee,
Win 95 and NeXTStep 3.3/OpenStep 4.2 see's it just fine.
