I would say you are lacking the required permissions to access the linux
Try adding you the group audio.
And if you re lacking the devices, do you use a kernel with sound support
Note: CD sound is independent from other sound because the CD Audio goes
directly to the soundcard mixer. It does not use any sound driver.
You can even hear a CD playing in your CDROM under plain DOS without any
drivers - it is hardwired to the output jacks.
(At least, on all sound cards I've seen sofar.)
