The vmlinux-indy-sound is a kernel that's compiled with sound support,
vmlinux-indy doesn't have sound support.  Of course the changes that have been
made to the CVS tree in between make the kernels different as well.

I doubt there is a tar ball of the source for vmlinux-indy-sound-2.2.1-990526,
but you can however check out the CVS directory as it was 990526. Try
something like:

cvs -d ':pserver:cvs@oss.sgi.com:/home/pub/cvs' co -D 990526 linux

Good luck!
