well to answer with the info supplied, all i can suggest is to go to xmms preferences and try another output plugin (or whatever its called), i personally use esound...
secondly, which i should have mentioned first, is the sound card installed properly? do you get output from any other multimedia apps?
Another thought: I'm sure you've already done this, but just in case, have you verified that: the speaker cables are connected, the volume is up, you don't have Mute on, etc. Sometimes the obvious things are the easiest to overlook. -- J.W.
