Yeah, sorry, my post wasn't really directed at your problem as much as
it was attempting to dispel a common (poor) solution as the Right Way
(TM) of doing something.
Are you using any sort of sound daemon like "arts" or "esd"? Well,
perhaps a better question (if you don't know the answer to the previous
one) would be to ask if you can ever play sound in more than one program
at once (i.e., have more than one program accessing the sound card at
any given time). If not, perhaps some program is blocking on your sound
card (should be /dev/dsp), and that is preventing VMWare from obtaining
any ability to read/write to it.
