Bo, you should be able to test those sounds you are selecting as you
select them. You might be lacking an rpm that actually contains those
files, but the names of the files that =should= be there aren't? 

I use KDE, so sound files are in /usr/share/sounds and I found
KDE_Glass_Break.ogg in my pick list in control center. 
I use locate then to find where KDE_Glass_Break.ogg really is thusly:

[root iam ~]# locate KDE_Glass_Break.ogg
[root iam ~]#                            
And yes, there it is. Now I am certain that IF I select that filename
that it really exists and that using rpm -qa |grep ogg I get:

[root iam ~]# rpm -qa |grep ogg

I have the libogg libraries installed for playback. Hope this helps. p/s
you also might have to turn "system sounds" to "on" with a check box, as
you have to do in KDE, through the control panel. Ric
