Flash will only play through OSS, not ALSA... so be sure to load snd-pcm-oss
and snd-mixer-oss modules, and to give the correct permissions on /dev/dsp and
/dev/mixer to your user or group...
You can try to run firefox with aoss with "aoss firefox"... you can find aoss
in the alsa-oss port...
i think one of these should solve your problem...
