Sound is not supported in the default kernel.  You'll need to add a device and 
recompile the kernel.  See /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/LINT for examples.

Also make sure FreeBSD supports the sound codec.

Lastly, make sure the applications you're using are proplerly configured to 
use the correct devices, etc.  For example, IIRC, kscd uses /dev/rcd0c by 
default which most people will need to change to /dev/acd0c or /dev/cd0c.

Best of luck,

Andrew Gould
