Ok, thanks. I am using xine right now to listen to a CD, and it works
fine. Makes me sad to say good-bye to the wmcdplay dockapp icon that's
been on my desktop for a decade though....

On to another exciting topic, my laptop is docked at the moment, and
the big honkin' pc speakers are plugged into the dock. In windows the
sound comes out of the docked speakers, but in freebsd I'm getting
sound only from the laptop speakers. Any ideas where to look?
