There are a few methods.

You can use libasyn to direct any oss app through JACK.
You can use the alsa jack plugin to do similar
You can use a program called vsound which hijacks the audio before it 
gets to the oss driver.

I prefer libasyn but it is not compiling with the latest jack cvs. It 
will work with the stable release though.

Being on stage with the band in front of crowds shouting, "Get off! No! 
We want normal music!", I think that was more like acting than anything 
I've ever done.
