I don't know for sure, but i dont think you could.

Why do you want two sound cards?

Why would you want to? overkill if you ask me...and i doubt anyone's spent the money to come up with something for this to be possible...

I'd think it's possible, but not practical.

You only need one sound card.

I think it's possible, but never tried it. I have 3 soundcards in my MMX, but only the PCI card works under XP. The other two are ISA (but sound much better).
I guess you would just have to install the drivers for each card and configure each audio player to use a different sound card.
