I have an Acer 1620, it has an ATI board with a Realtek onboard AC97 audio card what you guys refer to has the ATI AC97. I installed OSS in a dir that isn't in the PATH, hope that doesn't matter, ran soundconf and it detected automatically the audio card.
Then it asked me for a I/O port and an IRQ i don't know wich port to chose so i just chose randomly, and the IRQ i have 3 and 7 occupied with stuff mentioned in the BIOS and in the 11 there is a PCI device, wich i think it's the audio card, but since it shows occupied, i'm not sure if i should chose it or not.
I tried selecting lots of IRQ's and I/O ports and got no sound, i also read on some doc that APM and or PnP could mess things up so i recompiled the kernel without APM, and can't find a way to turn off PnP, my BIOS has limited amount of options. Also tried using the shortcuts on my keyboard to mute/unmute sound, increase decrease volume, but during the tests i never hear sound.
What i do get is an error message, MTU probing failed.
I'm going nuts over here, can someone please help me out?

Same thing, i tried with osstest with and without headphones, allways trying to increase the sound and muting/unmuting with the shortcut keys, and no sound. I also tried setting the irq to the value mentioned in the sndstats, but was useless.
