Default Problem with sound in Syndicate & some other problems

I have a problem with sound in syndicate. It simply doesen't work. i tried changing the line where it sets the IRQ, DMA etc. but it still doesent' work. quite a few years ago i played it form original CD and i remember i also had problems setting up the sound. now it's even more difficult because the packed file doesen't contain any setup programme.

oh i tried the EMS dos mode, WIN98 command prompt only etc. i am using a creative labs sound blaster. and the game works normaly appart from no sound.

here are the start up files:
-----------------
Autoexec.bat
-----------------
rem call C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\_nw_nds.bat C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM
SET BLASTER=A220 I7 D1 T2
SET SNDSCAPE=C:\WINDOWS
path=c:\windows\command
mode con codepage prepare=((852) C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\ega.cpi)
mode con codepage select=852
LH keyb yu,,C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\keybrd2.sys
rem @C:\PROGRA~1\NORTON~1\NAVDX.EXE /Startup

rem - By Windows Setup - c:\windows\command\mscdex.exe /D:TEAC-CDI /M:15

rem SET PATH=D:\JAVA\jdk\bin


rem SET CLASSPATH="D:\java\jdk1.1.8\C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\QTJava.zip"
rem SET QTJAVA="D:\java\jdk1.1.8\C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\QTJava.zip"
LH c:\sbpci\apinit
LH c:\mouse\mouse.exe
d:

-------------------
config.sys

Another thing are Deadly games. i keep getting the "error:Problem reading CD rom. PLease check " evethough i changed the drive letter.
i also tried putting it on root directory but it doesen't seem to have any effect. is there any other cd.rom file? or a file that determins the CD letter?
oh BTW i have some other version of deadly games (not downloaded from abandonia) but i think it's the same one.

And last i donwloaded Centurion. Nice game. Everything works. except.... well i counquered entire world and nothing happened. :? i mean the game should end right? or do i have to do something else to finish it.
