no audio when running programs under wine

anyone clue on what could be causing this. i have no idea where in wine i would setup the sound card also i was wondering if wine is slow in running programs. it doesn't seem to be that smooth is anyone else experiencing this? thanks!

this is from my wineconfig
; Uncomment the "Drivers" line matching your sound setting.

"Drivers" = "wineoss.drv"      ; default for most common configurations
;"Drivers" = "winearts.drv"    ; for KDE
;"Drivers" = "winealsa.drv"    ; for ALSA users
;"Drivers" = "winejack.drv"    ; for Jack sound server
;"Drivers" = "winenas.drv"     ; for NAS sound system
;"Drivers" = "wineaudioio.drv" ; for Solaris machines
;"Drivers" = ""                ; to disable sound
"WaveMapper" = "msacm.drv"
"MidiMapper" = "midimap.drv"

;; HEL only: Number of waveOut fragments ahead to mix in new buffers.
;"HELmargin" = "5"
;; HEL only: Number of waveOut fragments ahead to queue to driver.
;"HELqueue" = "5"
;; Max number of fragments to prebuffer
;"SndQueueMax" = "28"
;; Min number of fragments to prebuffer
;"SndQueueMin" = "12"
;; Forces emulation mode (using wave api)
;"HardwareAcceleration" = "Emulation"
;; Sets default playback device (0 - number of devices - 1)
;"DefaultPlayback" = "0"	; use first device (/dev/dsp)
;"DefaultPlayback" = "1" 	; use second device (/dev/dsp1)
;"DefaultPlayback" = "2" 	; use third device (/dev/dsp2)
;; Sets default capture device (0 - number of devices - 1)
;"DefaultCapture" = "0"		; use first device (/dev/dsp)
;"DefaultCapture" = "1"		; use second device (/dev/dsp1)
;"DefaultCapture" = "2"		; use third device (/dev/dsp2)
you can also alter the specific dsound or WinMM or any other settings for only one specific app like this (this one is for dsound)
"EmulDriver" = "N"

or whatever you want to put in there

wine for me runs fine -- a little slower than windows bt not alot just takes alot of time to start
and i would imagine if you don't have alot of ram it could be very choppy

wine is an experiment that only works well for a limited number of applications
