Apologies if this is off topic, but...I need to set a some clients to
rdesktop with sound by putting it is SCREEN_01 in lts.conf, but it's not
quite working as expected.

I'm running Warren's K12Linux F10 Stable 4 x86-64 Live CD installed to the
harddrive.  Sound under ldm works great, but if I try running *"rdesktop -r
sound:local -f",* from ldm, rdekstop works, but sound is on
the server, not the client.  If I run *"padsp -d -s 'client-ip':4713 -n
rdesktop rdesktop -r sound:local -f" * everything works fine,
but not quite what I'm looking for.

If I set SCREEN_01 to *"rdesktop -r sound:local -f"*,
rdesktop works, but no sound anywhere.  I tried runing *"padsp -d -s
localhost:4713 -n rdesktop rdesktop -r sound:local -f"* from
SCREEN_01, but it complained about padsp not found, even when specifying

Am I understanding this correctly, pulse server starts on the client, ldm
sets up a virtual alsa, rdesktop uses OSS for sound, and padsp reroutes OSS
to pulse?  If I set SCREEN_01=shell, do I only have pulse and how do I use
