Thanks for your reply, Alastair.  I did use that guide in getting myself 
set-up with sound, and do have alsa-oss installed:

bash-2.05b# epm -qa | grep alsa

Is there any other special configuration of asterisk that needs to be 
done?  I know I made some manual changes to the /etc/modules.d/alsa 
file during my initial setup of sound.  Does asterisk need a special 
alias in it perhaps, or should my /dev/dsp be an alias to something 
else (not that I understand these aliases all that well...)?

bash-2.05b# cat /etc/modules.d/alsa| grep -v \#

alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore

alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

alias /dev/mixer snd-mixer-oss
alias /dev/dsp snd-pcm-oss
alias /dev/midi snd-seq-oss

options snd cards_limit=1

Thanks again for your reply.
