	As an update. I took your advice and purchased several pci soundcards and I 
get the same result as I did when I was using the onboard sound. When I try 
to make a call I get this interesting output.

CallManager: callTo : whizz
CallManager: placeCall: whizz
new P2P call
MainForm: newCallTab
OutgoingCallTab : 1 calls
QMetaObject::findSignal:Sky::OutgoingCall: Conflict with QObject::destroyed()
call: status: 1
Sky: Call: getStatus routing
UI: User::getAvatar no avatar, returning default avatar image
SingleCallManager: SingleCallManager
call: status: 1
Sky: Call: getStatus routing
WidgetCallTab: updateTabIcon: STATE 0
open /dev/dsp: Device or resource busy
Call: OnChange: key 249
Call: Problem with sound device
Call: OnChange: key 273
Call: OnChange: key 245

	Man, what is going on?
Thanks Derrick
