You will need a sound server (like KDE's artsd).

Gnome has esd, a sound server will help but the catch is that the applications you use has to support output using it. If it has no support you can try executing "esddsp <program>" to allow non-esd applications to route through esd, though from past experience it rarely works properly.

An easier solution would be getting yourself a cheap soundblaster live, it's capable of doing hardware mixing therefore you won't have to worry about sound servers and such..
