indeed, the /dev/snd files were missing and using snddevices to install them 
has gotten the sound for 'xmms' working. now 'find /dev -group audio 
2>/dev/null | xargs ls -l' includes a lot of /dev/snd entries. (i couldn't 
get snddevices working until i untarred the alsa-driver source and ran 
snddevices from the resulting alsa-driver directory.) HOWEVER, xine doesn't 
work yet. i notice on the web btw the remark that in the xine setup function 
i should see "audio driver to use" and an 'alsa' choice in the list. i 
see 'oss' in the list among other things, but no 'alsa'.
