the entire kernel (just to be safe), and loaded the kernel module.

Configured artsd to use /dev/dsp0.2, xmms to use /dev/dsp0.0, and was
able to play sound from XMMS and Amarok at the same time.  :)

If there's any other info required, let me know.

Great work, thanks.  That allowed me to remove Debian and put FreeBSD
back on this laptop.  :)
