sound question

I have a problem I somehow fixed once, but I can't remember how :-)

sim-icq gives me the following message

play: /dev/dsp: Device busy

(it uses the play command for the sound plugin)

it means that somehow the sound channel is used by other program (I have xmms 
running, and also enlightenment has the sounds option on), but only the play 
command doesn't run

can I make play use other device ?   which one ?
