I looked around and could not find much information on the metrobook dt configurations. The sound system is compatible with soundblaster pro so I would start by trying their drivers (16-bit). Try this link for driver download:

The display adapter is a little more tricky. The metrobook was made with various graphic chips (ati, neomagic and s3). I guess I'd start with the ati (it's pretty popular in laptops) and see if it will work. If not, simply try one from a different manufacturer until you come across one that does work. Here's a link for the ati all-in-wonder:

Without knowing the exact chip types it can only be done by guesswork.

Sorry.
