Sounds like something might be wrong with your dialog. Generally, a CONNECT
message will be kicked out as soon as you have a valid connection with your
ISP. You probably want to do a manual login and carefully record all messages
sent to you as well as the replies you send. Then make sure your dialog is
written to look for and send the information you recorded.

Are you using CS 1.2? If so, have you done...

    Add: 'alias sound dmasound' to your /etc/conf.modules file
    and reboot your system. Sound should be activated :)

For volume you probably want to play with one of the mixers. Both kmix and
gmix should do the job.
