I am not sure whether the Yamaha Sound Card is supported
under Mulinux,
but assuming that it is and that other sound programmes
operate correctly
try the following:

edit c:\linux\loadlin.cfg

Amend the line "no387" to read "#no387" and save the amended
Use loadlin to launch Mulinux, e.g. cd to the linux
directory and issue
the command linux.

I had a similar problem with an ess1868 soundcard; mpg123
operated correctly when using lilo to launch Mulinux but not
when using loadlin. Amending loadlin.cfg
solved it, although quite why I do not know.

Hope this helps,
