As people said your choices are
1) Use sound card with hardware mixing
2) Run sound mixing daemon like esound or arts
3) Set up dmix in alsa. I also heard that alsa 1.10 is supposed to
come with replacement for dmix ?
3) is preferable to 2), especially arts seems having a lot of bad rap.
I have recompiled everything without arts (I don't have gnome or esound
installed) and set up dmix devices. Works fine.
I don't know much about 'jack'
