Hello.

I'm attempting to setup FreeDOS, so I can play some older DOS games. What I seem to be having a problem with is that there's no sound.

This is my FDCONFIG.SYS:

!COUNTRY=001,437,\FDOS\BIN\COUNTRY.SYS
!SET lang=EN
!LASTDRIVE=Z
!BUFFERS=20
!FILES=40
!DOS=HIGH,UMB
!DOSDATA=UMB
!set dircmd=/ogn /4
!MENUCOLOR=7,0
MENUDEFAULT=2,5
MENU 1 - Load FreeDOS with EMM386, no EMS (most UMBs), max RAM free
MENU 2 - Load FreeDOS with EMM386+EMS and SHARE
MENU 3 - Load FreeDOS including HIMEM XMS-memory driver
MENU 4 - Load FreeDOS without drivers
DOS=HIGH,UMB
123?DEVICE=C:\FDOS\BIN\HIMEM.EXE
1?DEVICE=C:\FDOS\BIN\EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=TEST
2?DEVICE=C:\FDOS\BIN\EMM386.EXE X=TEST
;123?DEVICEHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\xdma.sys
123?DEVICEHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\xcdrom.sys /C:FDCD0001
123?DEVICEHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\cdrcache.sys FDCD0001 CDRCACH0 15000
REM 123?INSTALL=C:\FDOS\BIN\BLACKOUT.EXE
REM 123?INSTALL=C:\FDOS\BIN\BANNER1.COM
123?DEVICEHIGH=C:\FDOS\BIN\MORESYS.SYS
SHELLHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\command.com C:\FDOS\bin /E:1024 /P=C:\autoexec.bat
123?INSTALLHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\lbacache.com 15000 TUNS


Only the first 3 options are available:
"MENU 1 - Load FreeDOS with EMM386, no EMS (most UMBs), max RAM free"
"MENU 2 - Load FreeDOS with EMM386+EMS and SHARE"
"MENU 3 - Load FreeDOS including HIMEM XMS-memory driver"

Do I need all of these?

Would someone be able to give me a basic config.sys, and autoexec.bat, that'd work in general?

And... one more thing. this PC is a Trigem Cognac, Pentium Celeron 667, with no sound card. I believe it uses AC'97 audio, which isn't Sound Blaster compatible.

Is there any way I could get sound in DOS games that require SB audio, like maybe through some type of emulation drivers?

-EDIT-
Nevermind, I just went out and bought a used, working, FM sound card.
