Windows 7: Virtual PC Doesn't Always Have Sound

Virtual PC Doesn't Always Have Sound

G'day all. I'm running Windows 98SE on Virtual PC2007. I've noticed a lot of the time when the virtual machine boots into Windows it doesn't have sound, like it's not capturing the soundcard or something. Is there a way to force Virtual PC to always connect to the soundcard?

Click Start
Click Settings
Click Control Panel
In the Control Panel double-click the Systems icon.
Click the Device Manager tab.

That does work temporarily. Is there a more permanant solution?
