No CD-ROM sound, all other sound works fine
I have Fedora Core 1 installed on a toshiba satellite A45 S150. The install detected my soundcard correctly, and all the systems sounds work fine. The problem is that my CD-ROM will not play sound. The CD-ROM plays cd's just fine, but I cannot hear them.
I drove around on the internet for a while trying to pin this down, but I have not had any success. Obviously, I checked the mixer settings (with aumix) and made sure the volume was turned up.
A lot of people have suggested checking a cable that plugs your CD-ROM directly into the soundcard, but I don't think this is an option on my laptop.
I am guessing that the CD-ROM sound needs to be read, processed through the CPU, and then sent to the soundcard. My problem is that I do not know how to do this and I have had no success at configuring xmms with a plugin (as suggested in other posts). I could really use some help with this xmms stuff because it sounds like that is a successful approach to this problem. Assuming I can get xmms to work, is there a way to get the rest of my cd apps to work? Is there some system setting that I need to tweak or what?
The cd-rom works fine under XP (this is a dual boot system).

I am fairly new to linux so step by step instructions are always a bonus.
Thanks in advance,
