Thanks, that is the guide linked to from Jarod's. I tried their
.asoundrc with no luck.

Thank you for the tip. I tried it, still sound just out of internal speaker :(

I've installed with yum, per jarod, and I've tried to install the cvs,
but couldn't get it to install.

Thanks again for the suggestions.
