Well I've spend some time now to try this. Nothing, the same. Actually I 
tested my skype with echo123 service I think 30 times. The same terrible
sound like a bear mumbling....

Take your time, no problem, I can understand this, as I am doing the same 
in another field. For the moment if I need to use skype on my laptop i 
turn off the FreeBSD and start the WinXP partiton, this is life. At the
office I am happy having a PC with via sound card which now works fine
with skype. I had an ideea : which exactly files are needed to fix for the
necesarry modules, maye I can compare the vorking via files with csa 
ones... I could try !

Thanks a lot, I feel good when I can share my FreeBSD experiences with 
those more specialists !
