There are two ways of doing this. The first would be to specify
-d alsa09 on the command line (It's a bug in the manpage, just noticed
it, it says the option is alsa). Like "ogg123 -d alsa09 foo.ogg"
The other, more elegant, way of doing it would be to put your default
driver in ~/.libao, like this:
echo default_driver=alsa09 > ~/.libao
(Funnily enough, this also accepts =alsa)
