I was searching for the driver for my Sound Blaster Live! and I noticed that a mac driver exists for the Sound Blaster.
I have a spare Live! (CT4830) and am wondering that while it was made for a PC, if these cards will work in a mac or do we have the same issue here as we had in video cards where the cards are identical but the EEPROM contents are different?
BTW, the card will be going into a B&W G3 Powermac.

IIRC you only need the spayshul firmware on video, ide, and scsi cards if you want em to be the b00t device. Try it and see. It certainly wont fuck anything up, but as an example, a Mac sees certain PCI Linksys wifi cards (BCM43xx based) as native Apple AirPort cards. YMMV. IANAL. TANSTAAFL. YHBT, YHL, HAND.

Okay, I'll try it once all my assorted parts come in so I can get the system running (and you remember to stuff that G4 upgrade someplace in that Octane I'm getting off you on Friday. ;) )
