Thank you! That got it working. Now we can watch our movies on
Dragonfly! We have been evaluating Dragonfly and, so far, it is very
impressive. mplayer seems to play videos a lot smoother on a 1.3Gig
machine (even with KDE running) than NetBSD does on our 2.6Gig box.
I wonder if it is because of Matt's new LWKT code.
I had to directly load the snd_via8233.ko module. It turns out that
snd.ko was apparently loading all the sound modules except for two.
snd_via8233.ko and snd_uaudio.ko. I thought it was loading all of them.
Here is output of kldstat after loading snd.ko.

So the question is, why did snd.ko not load two of the modules? It is
just my luck that it happens to be the one for our sound device. Is
that a bug or a feature?
Also, we have not found any documentation that lists what devices are
supported for each module? Does it exist? The snd/pcm man page lists
AC97 mixer and a variety of cards it supports, which led us to think
that that might me the only module needed for this device. It does not
seem to mention anything about the other snd modules.
