    Compatible Soundcards for Windows Server 2k3?

    Does anyone know what inexpensive soundcards are compatible with Server 2k3?
    I have it installed on my K6-3 machine and I just need something cheap so it has some sort of sound. My old ISA SB16 doesn't seem to work, I'm assuming it's not supported by Server 2k3. Would a PCI SB16, or maybe a Live Value work?

    Thanks so much!
    I was looking for something like that but hadn't had any luck.

    Am I reading this right? There's only one soundcard supported by 2k3, but most everything else on the list is supported by 2k?

    microsoft finally dropped support for my diamond multimedia soundcard. lol. well a lot of xp drivers work for 2k3 and some don't. I would assume if you have anything thats nearly new and made by a big name then chances are good that it will work.

    I have sound on my laptop at work.

    W/ products like Win2k3 Server, if it's supported by say, XP and 2k Server, it'll pro'lly work w/ 2k3 Server.

    I just bought a Sound Blaster 128 PCI on ebay. It was on the list so hopefully it'll work.

    Thanks for the help guys
