2.6 defaults to ALSA which is supposed to have hooks for all the older OSS stuff. However, ALSA mutes most of the channels by default.

Go to a terminal and type alsamixer. Move through the channels with the left and right cursor keys and hit the spacebar to unmute the channels that you want open. ESC to save and exit. Should work after that.

The only thing that doesn't work for me with sound in the test kernels is the PC speaker and I can live without that ;))
