No Sound from Dosbox - Can You Help

Is anyone out there successfully using Dosbox under Mandrake 10.1?
I have dosbox installed, and it plays my old DOS games really well,
but I can't get any sound from them.

There doesn't seem to be any way to specify
which sound device to use, and it always picks a non existant one
and then complains that it cant open it. With my config (just
/dev/sound/dsp), it always complains that it can't open
/dev/sound/dsp1. Feeling clever, as root I made a soft link called
/dev/sound/dsp1 that just pointed to /dev/dsp (as does /dev/sound/dsp).
Dosbox was more clever. The next time I started it, it said it couldn't
open /dev/sound/dsp2! I created one of those; it complained that it couldn't
/dev/sound/dsp3... and so on.

Is there some dosbox option that doesn't show up in the man page
or at their web site that would let me point it directly at a sound
