The sound problem on the T-140 is the driver for the audio chip.  I had
a hard time getting my hands on the driver source code, but fortunately,
I now have the code.  I've just not had a chance to integrate it into
the LTSP kernels.  Once I get the local dev stuff further along, I'll
look at putting out a new kernel.

If anybody wants to build their own kernel and include the driver, let
me know, and I'll send you the code.
