Your best bet for sound with Wine (and therefore CrossOver) is to
use a library that delivers an OSS emulation, and configure CrossOver
to use OSS.  You can go into CrossOver and configure it to use the
art or ESD Wine driver, but both of those drivers are fairly buggy.
The ALSA driver is shaping up nicely, but that's likely to be more of
a 7.0 thintg, and what's more, I don't think that helps you in an
LTSP environment much.

Hope that helps.
