I just installed this package in Xubuntu 6.10 running
LTSP 4.2, and I can say it worked well for me.  There
is no uninstall script, but I just took a look at the
install script and I think I know how you would
manually uninstall it.  

Besides copying some driver files to your ltsp tree,
it also modifies /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.sound --
luckily, it makes a backup of the old file as
rc.sound.symbiont.bak  I think this is the only file
you would have to change to revert back to your
original state.  

I don't think the mere presence of driver files would
cause any harm -- I think it is the rc.sound file that
calls those drivers.  If you wanted, you could also
delete /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/audiolist-alsa, which is
another file that the install script places in your
ltsp tree.

If you want to track down all the driver files, you
could untar the ltsp-alsa-*.tgz files that came in the
original tar file, then track down those files in your
ltsp tree and delete them.  I just tried it, and there
are a lot of files to track down, and I don't think
it's necessary to do.

Summary--  I think you can revert to your original
settings with this command:
mv /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.sound.symbiont.bak

Good luck!
