There are three ways you can do this:

K1EA DVP card (requires one ISA slot)
W9XT Contest Card (requires one ISA slot)
SoundBlaster compatible sound card

If all you have is PCI slots, yor only real choice is a sound card.  TR Log
supports the DVP and the W9XT cards directly.  To use a sound card you need
to get SBDVP, a terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) software package that
you load into memory before your start TR Log.
