    ive just tried installing this driver and it says :

    "VIA AC97 audio chipset is not enabled on this system ! please enable it first on the bios then run this setup again."

    ive looked in the bios but i can`t find it anywhere??

    you need to enable it by jumpering pins 1 and 2 on the Audio_EN pins. Enabled is the default position.

    This jumber is on the very bottom of the board, below the last PCI connector.

    could be in the bios also.... most boards are set ON by default on the jumper pins when they include sound no?

    check the bios settings also to be sure
