sound permissions


i cant for the life of me figure out how to make the sound system work on debian woody as a normal user. I can play audio cd's as root, but get nothing when i try to load the cd as a normal user. Please send any suggestions

chmod 777 /dev/ds* /dev/sn* /dev/mix*
that will give all users permissions to the sound cards.

chmod changes permissions based a 3 digit code, owner, group, everyone (7-7-7) 1 is execute, 2 is read, 4 is write (4 and 2 may be swapped I forgot) you combine the numbers to decide what permisions go to who, 777 means everyone cand o anything to it.
