Use sndconfig (just run as root and select the cs4232 driver) to set it up
(don't recompile the kernel).

* Try flip-flopping the DMA settings.  Here's a set that works on my
system: io=0x530 irq=5 dma=1 dma2=0 mpuio=0x330 mpuirq=5
* Turn off Quick Boot in the Thinkpad's easy setup - it causes some Linux
* Once you verify sound works, you might want to install the cs4232 script
from here: http://www.pc.ibm.com/qtechinfo/MIGR-4BP6Q6.html  (The 600
series uses similar sound hardware to the 380).

Also, you might have trouble if you reboot from Windows.  Turn the machine
off after using Windows and see if it works better.
