This worked for me!
Here is my senario for future reference:
I had my linux box in a 200 mhz compaq deskpro (128 mb sdram, 40. gig hd)
I recently was given a 333 mhz gateway. I swapped out its dinky 7 gb drive and upped the ram to 320 mb. I threw in my cheapo 3com network card from the compaq and the dvd drive. I booted it up into slackware, logged into my vnc server, and did the config command. I now have mp3s playing directly into my stereo from the Soundblaster Live I had installed
Now I just need a really long looping playlist.
