Sound has been a problem for me too.  On my 6500 (yes, I know it's
*really* old), I get no dmasound.  A partial solution is to use alsa.
If you do this make sure you uninstall the dmasound modules.

ALSA is not perfect because I have no volume control at all unless I use
alsa-player, and even then the maximum volume is only half of what it
should be.  If I try to use a mixer when xmms or mp3blaster is playing
the sound starts to break up completely.

I'm planning to try the alsa-xmms plugin to see what happens, but it's
only available in unstable at the moment and I'm running stable, and I
haven't figured out how to run one unstable package on a machine that is
running stable everywhere else -- but I'll get there.

So, in short, try ALSA.
