wrong dma channels.
It should read
wss0 at isa0 port 0x530-0x537 irq 9 drq 3 drq2 3: CS4231A (vers 63)
# ISA audio devices
wss* at isa? port 0x530 irq 9 drq 3 drq2 3 # Windows Sound System
# Audio support
audio* at wss?
in the config file. Sorry, hardware seems to be only half
duplex? (two wires missing between sound chip and sio). By the
way, the interrupt latency seems to be so high, that rates
higher than 8k do not really work very well.
