After a clean install of Fedora 11, I reinstalled my quest OS's (Windows
XP x86) and Windows 7 (x86_64) and I was unable to get the audio to work
in the guests. I have since deleted the Windows 7.
My host configuration is:
CPU: AMD Opteron quad core
6GB memory.
Tyan mother board
nVidia MCP55 High Definition Audio
Currently firewalls and SELinux disabled.

KVM/QEMU details:
Sound emulator ES1370.
Windows XP device manager detecting and showing ES1370.
All volume controls are high not muted.

I am executing KVM via the system tools menu.
