I'm using version 0.59n, compiled from the package system around early
March, and it sounds fine... I usually use the "-b" option with a few
megabytes worth of buffers to keep the audio from breaking up when I'm
doing a compile, but if the system is idle, it'll work without any extra

I've got a Pentium 166 (not MMX) with a non-PnP SB16:
