Hmm, this looks pretty much exactly like my configuration down to the same
IRQ and everything. However, I'm still unable to get mine configured by
the kernel. I did try isapnp first because the kernel reports the audio
device on isapnp0, but I'm not certain that this is the right way to do
it. I have also uncommenting the ess0 device on isa? in the GENERIC
kernel. However, I didn't comment out the original ess device. Should I be
doing this?

Was that all you did (just uncomment the isa "ess0" device) ? I've tried
that and I still only this:

isapnp0: read port 0x203
isapnp0: <ESS ES1879 Plug and Play AudioD, ESS0009, , > port 0x800/8 not configured
isapnp0: <ESS ES1879 Plug and Play AudioD, ESS1879, , > port 0x220/16,0x388/4,0x330/2 irq 5 drq 1,0 not configured

Thanks for the help.
