PCI cards need some minimal initialization code; bare MPU-401 drivers
cannot do this.  Because of this, it wouldn't have made sense for Yamaha
to make this card MPU-401 compatible.  OTOH it would make sense for
MS-DOS compatibility (as is the case with the YMF754 chip and relatives).

Very unlikely that these are compatible with anything.
It might be possible to reverse engineer the Windows driver ...

>(There are commands that can be sent to initialize the card

Any specifics?
