I still can't get the soundcard to quick squealing/buzzing under suse 9.2. I'm running out of things to try. Anybody have any other thoughts? Details below:

Does it squeal on all run levels? Can you see as it boots at what point it starts to squeal?

It starts to squeal very very early in the boot process. (Almost as fast as I can hit escape to see the detail of the boot process). I boot into runlevel 3 because I use the CLI most of the time. It squeals in runlevel 3 and runlevel 5. Which is strange because most people describe KDE as the problem. After I figure out how to kill the splash/bootsplash so I can see the early details of the boot process, I'll try to pin it down further.

Doug thought that the problem might be related to two drivers loaded by the pcibus as reported by lspci:

0000:00:05.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce MultiMedia audio [Via VT82C686B] (rev a2)
0000:00:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 AC97 Audio Controler (MCP) (rev a1)

Any idea where the pci bus config is so that I can disable one or the other? Any other thoughts on what I should try?
