I'm assuming you want to direct resources for a sound card, about the only one that is usually an issue in DOS games. If your sound card doesn't use acceptable DMA for a game, you first change the configuration in Device Manager, by unchecking the "Use Automatic Configuration" button, then run the game's setup program and reset the sound card options.

Check the game's files, one will be setup.exe and that should run the configuration utility.

Soon as I come up with all the answers...they change the questions!!
