7rxI# cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <nVidia nForce3> at io 0xe800, 0xe400 irq 11 bufsz 16384 
(1p/1r/0v channels duplex default)

What i learnt from all this is you have to do 2 things to make the
sk8n onboard sound work

1) kernel:
device  sound 
device  snd_ich

2) xmms:

NOTE: cat ohyeah.wav > /dev/audio will always sound completly distored
but when you play it with xmms it will sound perfect like it supposed
to be.

Why i dont know i think it has something to do with -esound- :)
Now who can help me make the spdif and suround sound work :)
