Just got Soyo SY7IS2 mb w/815EP chipset. I'm aware of the need for LiveWire3 upgrade to avoid conflicts but am still getting some crashes (OE) & (OD) BSODs. Any other known issues? (PIII 1GHz 256MB PC133)

Which PCI slot do you have the card in? Is it sharing any IRQs? You may also want to upgrade your MB drivers as well. This sometimes helps when dealing with the Soundblaster Live.
If it works for you then don't fix it.
Set BIOS to PNP OS-NO and exclude IRQ5 from the resource table. Then make the initialization string in Autoexec.bat read I5. That should resolve any resource conflicts.
