2 different signals to soundcard problem


I have an isapnp soundcard (SB16). When I listen music on xmms and I try to open a movie to play both, it gives an error: /dev/dsp - resource busy!
Can Sound System play 2 different sounds at the same time?
I want to play music and to hear New mail sounds when arrives (for example), and I don't know what I should do.

You need to use a sound server such as arts or esd.
