That does work up to a point. When I first log in (as "steve" or as "root"), 
/dev/dsp0 is crw------- belonging to root/root. So I logged in as root and 
set /dev/dsp0 to crw-rw---- belonging to root/audio, and sound was available 
to all. But when I exit the root login, the permissions immediately revert to 
crw------- and root/root. Any idea how I can make the permissions change 
stick (this is a desktop machine that is frequently stopped and started)?
