chmod 666 /dev/dsp* /dev/mixer* /dev/audio*

should set the permissions for all of those devices to be readable by all users. What are your permissions of these devices ?

ls -al /dev/dsp* /dev/audio* /dev/mixer*

i know his problem, it doesn't have to do with chmod-ing and /dev/dsp. His soundcard isn't supported on his kernel therefore it cant be accessed! just go download ALSA and edit your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules to add your soundcard and your good to go!
