|sound works fine, under Win98SE -- Jailbait Linux doesn't have the sound drivers integrated, as it's configured. the VIA82Cxxx chipset is best supported by the ALSA drivers, as noted at Peter Zinck Nielsen's web page for Linux on his Compaq notebook.|
for just an MP3 player, Win98 is a lot of overhead, requiring at least a 256 megabyte CF card, or a 340 megabyte MicroDrive. on the other hand, building the drivers for the Jailbait kernel (2.4.0-test1) is a bit more trouble, but less overhead, in the long run... if someone ever documents how to mount the Jailbait image via a loopback device, it would be a whole lot easier
(shameless request for help follows...)
since you're a Linux person, maybe you can help?
