Question sound in fedora 10 fluxbox problem

Hi guys. I'm having a similar problem that I can't seem to fix..

I am runing Fedora 10 with fluxbox. Whenever I startx into root and try and play sound, i can hear sound.. but when I startx into my fluxbox login.. 'another username' .. i don't hear sound..

this is what happens when I am in the other user account and 'startx' into fluxbox..

$ amixer scontrols
Simple mixer control 'Master',0
Simple mixer control 'Capture',0

and this is what happens when i run the same command in root..

# amixer scontrols
ALSA lib pulse.c:272:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Connection refused

amixer: Mixer attach default error: Connection refused

I see two problems here..

1)no matter what I try, I can't seem to get the Master volume to go up to 100% when logged into my user account.. (i've tried 'amixer set Master 100% unmute' and alsamixer)

2)and the obvious error that confronts me when I am logged into root. (i've tried gpasswd -a USERNAME audio [although i don't know what that actually does] )

Thanks guys..
