Alsa drivers cannot play mor than one sound at a time

Im running redhat 9 with 2.4.20-18.9, have nforce motherboard. Running alsa drivers (.94) I compiled my self. The sound works sweet as, but I can only play one sound at a time.
e.g. If im playing a music through xmms with the alsa .9 plugin and I start a movie the movie will not start playing until I press stop on xmms, then it runs. Basically it locks the program till the sound card is free. It cannot play sound from two programs at once.
Can anyone help me with this? This happens with any program e.g. videolan, mplayer, xine, so I assume the driver is not set correctly.
