You probably need to stop the KDE sound system, start JACK, and then 
optionally configure the KDE sound system to use JACK and restart it (or just 
leave it off...  I turned off the KDE sound system back on KDE 2.1 and have 
never turned it back on.)

If it isn't the KDE sound system, the other thing that usually holds up my 
audio hardware is the Macromedia flash player plugin.

Theres also supposed to be some way around all of this now, called "dmix," 
that lets you have everything playing nice even on hardware that doesn't 
allow multiple applications to connect to it directly.  The problem is I read 
through dozens of pages about "dmix" and still have no idea how to make it do 

Linux audio is evil.
