Sound works at the client for some programs with LTSP4.2 but because
some packages want esd and some alsa, and some use others, it is
hit-or-miss whether a particular package will 'just work' without
having to worry about twiddling with settings for the package.  With
LTSP5 it seems that sound 'just works' for all the apps the teacher
wants to use. Also, videos stay in sync better.

Sorry if my post implied that sound didn't work at all.  It does work
but LTSP5 seems to work better.
