As far as I can see ALSA are just the sound driver.  It does not have a 
sound server.
IN my Red Hat 9 box, the sound server artds has an option -a that is 
supposed to accept alsa, oss and toss as parameters.  But, artds -A 
shows that valid options are only oss, toss and null.
So, I set it to run with -a toss ( prerefences -> Sound -> Sound  server).
As long as I can hear music I am sure the Alsa drivers are working.
I would  like to know if working with artsd is ok or I should wswitch to 
jack or esd.
