Not sure if this is your problem but it is a common problem for many
people so I will mention it.

  ls -l /dev/dsp
  crw-rw----    1 root     audio     14,   3 2002-03-14 14:51 /dev/dsp

Make sure you are in the audio group.  Assuming your login is wlv21
then the following will add you to the audio group.  You will want the
same for video, floppy, cdrom, src, adm, staff too.

  addgroup wlv21 audio

Then log out and log back in so that at login you will be in that
