formatted hard drive (only the primary partition - I have partitions )
Installed Latest VIA Apollo133pro drivers (version xxx9) (I have Asus CUV4x - Via Apollo 133pro chip)
SOS: when asked I didn't install AGP drivers at Turbo mode but I put "STANDARD MODE" - this because in turbo mode I get problems with DVD Software players (ATI, POWERDVD, WINDVD...)
Installed FIRST of all: VGA drivers - Only drivers - no applications.
then: Installed from cd SBLIVE!5.1 "all the software and drivers EXCEPT "DOS Drivers". I disselected "Dos Drivers" choice, in order to avoid the SB16 emulation... to be installed - though it seems now like it IS installed (? !)
then installed all the other multimedia applications...
bla bla, and now I don't have the problem with "gameport..."
I did the exact same thing you did yesterday morning and it finally worked. Don't know if it was the order or what, of course I used cd drivers, the one's i d/l from creative gavve me the not enough space on your 40gig drive error.
My Jesus is whiter than your Jesus.

Well, I have read that the "order" does play some important role, but I'm not sure. Anyway, that problem was not the only one I had, so what did I do...?
I went and changed my Via mobo and got an Intel815, and I have to tell you. I AM FREE OF PROBLEMS NOW.
(Sorry, Via sucks, yet)
