   Redhat 7.1, right?  In that case, you need to tell pump (the DHCP
client) not to update the resolv.conf file.  It looks like the option is
'-d' or '--no-dns'.  It looks like you can specify this by sticking
"PEERDNS=no" in a config file, maybe

   There shouldn't be a kernel issue here.  This might be a dumb question,
but do you have an analog audio patch cable from your CD to the SB Live?
Windows might be doing digital CD-Audio, which would make the cable
unnecessary.  I don't know of a way to do this in Linux, but only because
I personally haven't looked.
