AIUI, most soundcards just implement the headphone socket as another
output channel, so cranking it up in aumix should work.  It's possible
though, that aumix doesn't support mixing that channel, so maybe ALSA
(which seems to have broader and deeper device support, in general)
would work better?  Also, I bet the debian-ppc list would be more
helpful if this doesn't work.
