Try loading the modules "snd-mixer-oss" and "snd-pcm-oss" which should enable alsa to emulate /dev/dsp.
You can find them in modconf under /kernel/sound/core/oss

If that doesn't work, you can try apt-getting alsa-oss and running "aoss esd"

How did you get that to work. I am new at linux and I wanted to do the same thing. Using VNC through a ssh tunnel to get sound from the host computer.

Thanks

I typed in ESD it beeped and then just went to another command line. Do you happen to know what I would type when i connect through the ssh tunnel?

just type it in an ssh shell, I think. I saw an article , Ill find it.
The beep means it started successfully. Here is a quick howto I found using google, I read it over and it seems it should work.
http://www.retout.co.uk/mathsroom.html
Scroll downt where it says XMMS Remotely....
Then look where it says using esound over ssh
Math is the name of the remote machine in the example.
Alternatively to configuring apps to use esound, you probably, note I say probably, can use the KDE sound system and set it to esound.
Hope this helps
