Use the esound daemon (esd), and do the following:

On the computer with the sound card:
- kill esd, and start it up with the commandline options:
	esd -public -tcp -port 20000
  You can choose an alternate port number if you wish.

On the computer without a sound card:
- In your ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile startup script, or some 
  other script that runs at login, set the following variable:
	ESPEAKER=192.168.1.1:20000
  The IP address above should be the IP of the computer with the 
  sound card, and the port number should match the port used by 
  esd in step 1 above.

Configure all your apps to use esd if they have the option to do 
so, and they will work with your networked ESD daemon.

Finally:  Enjoy your networked sound.
