Can OSS share /dev/dsp amongst more than one app?

1. /dev/dsp and /dev/audio in OSS sound engine

hi all,

how does the OSS module handle the /dev/dsp and /dev/audio devices ?
there is no option available in the kernel setup, in 2.0.x it is.

if i try to write into the device, following error occurs :
bash: /dev/dsp: Operation not supported by device

any clues ?
