[K12OSN] How to get sound on GX260/270

We received some donations of IBMs from a similar source. The video did 
not auto detect so I followed the instructions here:


After I made the appropriate entries in the vidlist, the sound was 
autodetected. I would suggest following the instructions to see if it 
works for you. I have been intending to go back and to do the same with 
other chipsets that are not autodetected, to see if it eliminates a need 
to make separate entries in the lts.conf file like this:

#96 -- GX60, Science -- no floppy or cdrom drives

If you open a shell on the terminal and use the command lspci it will 
tell you what chipset is on the motherboard. (In the instructions above.)
