Using a gameport-MIDI interface with a gameport on the motherboard
should work automatically if the MIDI port is enabled in the BIOS setup
and if ACPI is enabled.  Without ACPI, you have to specify port address
and interrupt manually, as in:

modprobe snd-mpu401 port=0x330 irq=10

(however, look up the actual values in the BIOS setup)
