What version of FreeBSD are you using?
you can use them.
you have to enable linux emulation.
install "linux_base" from the ports
or if you have the FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE disks:
and include a line saying:
in your /etc/rc.conf file.
Some linux programs are included in the ports,
v. gr. netscape 4.8, you can install it from the ports.

you have to build a new kernel that can handle it.
read the manual [/usr/share/doc/en/books/handbook/kernelconfig.html]
to do this.
what sound card do you have?
must sound cards require only include
in your kernel configuration to handle them.
