Comments:
I know relatively little about this board, but Orchid is reportedly working on improving its OS/2 support. The above ftp site reportedly contains drivers which enable the board's SoundBlaster emulation under OS/2, allowing the user to use OS/2's SoundBlaster drivers. I don't know what happens with wavetable sound using this option, though I've received one report that IBM's MPU-401 driver does work with this board.
