If it's an ISA Plug n' Play soundcard, then mu's sound setup script doesn't
know how to set that up. What to do:

1) Pipe the output of pnpdump to some config file.
        # pnpdump > myisapnp.conf

2) Uncomment certain lines of this config file. Which lines? That would
depend on what hardware the PC has.

3) Run isapnp, using the carefully edited config file.
        # isapnp myisapnp.conf

4) If there are error messages, note them, and return to step 2.

5) Run the mu soundcard setup script.

Caution: the output of 'pnpdump' isn't pretty. Attempting steps 2-4
unassisted may induce chills.
