Thanks for the pointer on were to find sfxload and asfxload.
When using sfxload, I was able to load a sound font and use the Emu10k1
But when I read this post, I changed to the asfxload program. Then I got
an error stating the emu10k1-synth was not present. Something about
'unknown HwDep'. In /lib/modules/2.4.26-lck1/kernel/drivers/sound I
found snd-emu10k1-synth.o snd-emux-synth.o
Why weren't they found at bootup? In my kernel configuration for Sound
Support, I said Module to Sound and left everything else blank. Should I
have indicated using Module for the Emu10k1 section?
Or can I somehow load these modules at bootup time into my kernel? If
so, how (or where can I read about this topic?)
