If esd was blocking yes.

not at all.

No video, or you will flood him...

GnomeMeeting. (check the statusbar).

I guess you can run some commands to use ALSA instead of OSS, but I
don't know Mandrake..

They won't if you load the ALSA compat. modules.

Perhaps on a Mandrake forum?

SB PCI 128 is not full-duplex under OSS. I have your soundcard, and I
can confirm you will have to either install ALSA, either buy a webcam
with an internal mic (philips cams).
