Will DOS be able to work with a PCI soundcard, if I can find the correct driver?

If you will find driver it will work.

The oldest driver they have is for Win95. Think that'll work, since 95 was nothing more than DOS overlay anyway?

How do you want to use it? Under DOS 6.22 or older, Windows 95 command line, XP command line?

Under native DOS, a Windows 95 driver won't do you any good...if you know the I/O address, IRQ, and DMA, you may not need any drivers.

I do know that the Sound Blaster Audigy actually comes with legacy DOS drivers on the CD - very handy!
