Hi Tim. Regarding your card. No. If it's working now, don't mess with it.
Something you could do as a last request, is have a look in lsmod, and see if
there is a module there named emu10k1_gp. This appears to be an oss module
for the gameport. I do not have that module for my Audigy2, but Laura does
have it showing in lsmod with her Audigy live Platinum. Nigel.
