Just put something along the lines of
Code:
play <somefile.wav> &
in your .xsession (or whatever is run when you start X) before the fluxbox startup command. You may need to install whatever package contains the 'play' binary - sox under Debian.

Cheers,

mj

What do you have in your .xsession (or .xinitrc) ? It should be something along the lines of
Code:
play <somefile.wav> &
exec fluxbox
The fluxbox entry needs to be the last one.
