The "standard" (?) sound mixer that comes with debian is called xfmix, and
runs as "mixer" from the Debian menu under X (submenu: sound).

apt-get install xfmix

The volume you might want to increase to max is "PCM", rather than "VOL" or

An alternative is to set the volume under RealPlayer (package realplayer),
which also sets the volume for the whole system.

There should be a way of setting the volume by default when the sound
module is started up (an entry in /etc/modules/sound, perhaps?), but I
haven't figured this out yet.  Anyone know how?
