I think you missed the step where I said to remove EVERYTHING except the video card and the ISA soundcard (it is not clear from what you wrote above if you have one or two soundcards installed). Do that, then try to boot off floppy. If the floppy won't boot with only the video and ISA soundcard in the system, then put the ISA sound card in another system and (if that system boots) run the config for that soundcard to change its IRQ/DMA/port settings back to defaults, since they're obviously screwed up.

Or, the ISA soundcard is defective.
