Guess that needs configuration too.  Right now I'm using ALSA on
my laptop, don't know how many channels, but only one application
can play, and the other sounds are *queued* until the current one
stops.

A couple of months back I configured an ALSA mixer, but after a
few seconds of playback, it used to get stuck for no reason.  Of
course it may have been fixed by now.  And oh, it needs
applications being configured to use that software mixer device
instead of default ALSA device for playback (xmms, gaim, etc).
