Before you try debugging this in xmms, you might want to cat a .au file to
/dev/dsp ... If that makes noise, you know your basic sound drivers are
working, and the problem is somewhere higher up the chain of command (xmms
output plugin broken?  dunno)...  
If 'cat'ing a .au to /dev/dsp does *not* make noise, don't worry about xmms
until after you get your actual sound drivers working.
