hello,
does the device file exist? you cna check by doing a ls -l /dev/dsp in a terminal window. if not you can create it like this as user root
cd /dev
mknod dsp c 14 3
this creates a node for a charator device with major/minor numbers of 14, 3 which is what my dsp device is.

Run command ls -l /dev/dsp and see if the device file exists.

I need to work on my typing speed! I'm blazingly slow!

hello,
i am gussing you will need to reinstall the sound drivers again since it did not finish the first time. - if the modules are already compiled and installed you could try just inserting them -i.e. modprobe oss_module
