audiovia97 not as rare as I thought

So I was cleaning out my office.... (no jokes from the peanut gallery please!)

I was completely surprised to find that out of 5 old machines I was about to retire to the recycler, no fewer than three of them -- from totally different manufacturers -- one of them was Compaq Presario -- had integrated Via82c686 audio (which is supported by audiovia97.)

So if you've still got old Celeron's or PIII class systems around, there's a pretty good chance that you can get audio in OpenSolaris on them now.
