Hi all. I'm still trying to find a reasonably easy auto load at boot for 
awesfx usinf a .sf2 font stored in /home. I found a HOW-TO for awe at 
http://homepage.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/Marcus.Brinkmann/soundblaster.html  from 
Marcus Brinkmann, stud. rer. nat. "Sound Blaster AWE HOWTO" It's a bit old, 
like 2.0 kernel. A museum candidate. He stopped working on it because of lack 
of support for Linux from Creative.
  "You can load a default Sound Font Bank automatically with installing
  the module. Just append a line like

       post-install sound /usr/bin/sfxload synthgm.sbk

  to your /etc/conf.modules file."

That little bit was from his HOW-TO
Now I know this is from kernel 2.0 and OSS. BUT!

Is there half a chance of getting this to work in /etc/modules.conf for 
theRadio 2.4 kernel or /etc/modprobe.conf for the 2.6 kernel.
I'd like to get my little HOW-TO finished. Perhaps Fernando would consider 
making a new page on the planetccrma site for HOW-TO's .   Like HOW_TO's for 
various sound cards, etc. 
Tbis is another Saturday evening/Saturday afternoon diversion, depending on 
what time zone you're in.
France 19.52 PM. US of A anybodies guess, depending where you are.
