Actually, what would be really neat, would be if someone who knows how to get a hold of Patrick kindly suggest he adds this one to the Slackware FAQ, since it's a Slackware specific issue. (Well, ok, feature. It's probably not a good idea to give remote users write permission to sound devices, which is the more comon default)
You don't have to make dsp writable to all. Tom, Tom2, and root are the only ones that can use it on my system. Its easy, don't let the guy running netscape have access. Many normal people (like me) also don't have people logging in and using their system. I use it as my normal OS and the only person who would ever telnet (well ssh) to my system would be my other boxes on the family network.
