Not sure why people are seeing different things, but sound (with xmms and
a couple other toys) worked fine from day one using BootX 1.1.1. I have no
idea what esd is, but I just typed it and my PowerBook spit out a series
of beeps, so I guess it works. I had /dev/dsp by default with major 14,
minor 3.
