The really, really, simple way is to plug the line out jack from one
into the line in on the one with speakers (assuming that one is on
all the time).  Then go into the volume control and tweak the levels
so both come out right.  There are a couple of ways to do client/server
sound (esd and nasd), but a piece of wire is easier and doesn't care
what OS version you are running.
