Configuring Sound

Of the least importance to functionality, but perhaps the most importance to long-term productivity in the work environment being configured, I need to be able to listen to music. I have access to a great music share on Windoze, so I needed to get samba (see Section 2) working first.

I've had many battles with sound cards, and this one was the least of all of them. There are specific Linux sound HOW-TOs out there5, and they were kind of useful -- but this was a pretty trivial configuration.

First off, just try playing something logged in as yourself. If that works, you're good to go. If not, read on.
