Skipping and Unable to d/l the new Winamp

I'm currently running winamp 2.79, have looked through other threads, downloaded some patched wave-out .dlls and ect..

but still, whenever I browse the web, especially on graphic heavy sites such as deviantart, it studders like all heck.. it doesn't do this when I scroll however with the mouse wheel.. it's all fine with that.. it's just when I click on a link, or go back or whatever, it does a few skipping while whatever is being downloaded and rendered in the browser..

I'm currently running with..
AMD K-6 400mhz, 128ram, 8gig HD
Win98SE, IE6.0
Voodoo 3 (most recent drivers they produced before they went belly up)
and onboard sound card, C-media driver files
that's all stuck to a PC-chips M598LMR board that runs ona SiS530 chipset

The past versions of winamp haven't given me these problems, and I wish I could acutally un-upgrade it.. I had other problems a few years ago when I upgraded on an older computer and winamp said that it was to slow to run it.. I don't think I ever found an older working version..

I've also tried to download winamp 2.80 from the website, but can't get it to download. I had this problem a couple of weeks ago when I tried to download and install it on one of the computers at work and all it gave me was a 404 error.

So any help would make me much more happier with Winamp..

All versions available @ www.winampheaven.da.ru

Obligatory response...
We say the same thing to everyone:
The onboard sound chip is to blame.
Disable it in BIOS and install a proper soundcard.

Otherwise, check the pc/mobo manufacturer's website for updated driver/s.
