Well, that didn't quite work :(  but ...

rpm -ivh --replacefiles --nodeps pulseaudio-esound-compat

did install the package.  And sound still works and users can log in.
Since a check on /usr/bin/esd shows it linked to esdcompat, I'll
assume that pulse is now being used.

#ls -l /usr/bin/esd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 May  3 19:03 /usr/bin/esd -> esdcompat

Thanks!!!  I'll let this run on one of this system for a week or so
before implementing it on the other 5 ltsp servers.
