Question : How can I get my SoundBlaster/AudioPro card working
properly?

Answer : Many times this problem can be solved by installing the
Creative Labs driver supplied on the Windows NT Setup CD.
However, there are some 486 systems and some system chip sets
that are not fully compatible with the SoundBlaster/AudioPro
card. If find the following answer does not get your
SoundBlaster card working - file a bug report.

1) The Creative Labs Sound Blaster driver may not be installed
yet. You may use the Control Panel's Drivers option to install
the Creative Labs Sound Blaster 1.X driver (that is provided on
your Windows NT CD) After installing you should configure the
driver for the proper IRQ and address.

2) There may be an IRQ conflict with another device. Either change
the IRQ setting on the other device or on the sound card. The
default settings for the sound card is DMA 1, IRQ 7 and port
220h (note however that LPT1 also uses IRQ 7). We suggest
physically changing the SoundBlaster to IRQ 2 and then using
the Control Panel's Drivers option to reconfigure the Creative
Labs Sound Blaster 1.X driver to IRQ 2.

3) You can play WAV files but not MID files. This usually means
you still need to install the AD-LIB MIDI driver. The MIDI
driver may be installed via the Control Panel's Drivers option.

Well, that document is for drivers for the SB1.0/SB1.5, not 16, although the SB16 is backwards compatible with the 1.x series.
