...making Linux just a little more fun!

Hello, all. Anyone know how to redirect the sound when in a remote X session vie XDMCP? I don't mean telling the sound server where to send the sound, I mean have it redirect the /dev/dsp0 back to the computer that is being used.
Thanks, let me know if you need more info, I'd include more, but I'm short on time right now. Sorry.

I doubt that you can do that with XDMCP, and I don't think that redirecting /dev/dsp0 will be simple. Back in the good old days when I was using the Enlightenment window manager there was the Enlightened Sound Daemon (EsounD, http://www.tux.org/~ricdude/EsounD.html), that could relay sound playback to machines via the network. EsounD development has stopped in 2000.
Other ways to accomplish this may be http://pulseaudio.org/, the aRts project (http://www.arts-project.org/) or http://jackaudio.org/ (the latter site lacks its database server and may not produce any content).
