It is not PCI, but this Ensoniq card works just fine with RealPlayer 8
and a 1.5W kernel for me:

isapnp0: read port 0x203
isapnp0: <ESS ES1868 Plug and Play AudioD, ESS0000, , > port 0x800/8 not configured
ess0 at isapnp0 port 0x220/16,0x388/4,0x330/2 irq 5 drq 1,0
ess0:: ESS Technology ES1868 [version 0x688b]
ess0: audio1 interrupting at irq 5
audio0 at ess0: half duplex, mmap, independent
opl0 at ess0: model OPL3
midi1 at opl0: ESS Yamaha OPL3
joy0 at isapnp0 port 0x201/1
joy0: ESS ES1868 Plug and Play AudioD 
joy0: joystick not connected
isapnp0: <ESS ES1868 Plug and Play AudioD, ESS0002, , > ignored; resource conflict

(No, the ghost version of the card that's detected doesn't seem to
get in the way. The right one gets control of the IRQ. Whatever... I
hate "standard" PC architecture.)
