Remember since you are using LTSP that when you are in X you are  
looking a display of the server. The X server running on the client  
is sending video and keyboard input to the server and the server  
sends the display to your client. So the sound, disks, etc that you  
see in LTSP are the ones on the server by default.
I don't remember if the default gnome volume control will let you use  
ESD as the source instead of the hardware (ALSA/OSS). If it does,  
then you'd have to change that setting in the pref, or maybe even in  
gconf, I'm not sure. Also, you also need to be running a sound  
server, just like you need to have file shares enables on the client  
in order to use local devices/disks.
