Here is what happened. I got gmfsk to compile and load and it came up working just fine except for the same dam error message whan you try to go to transmit:
sound_open_for _write: opensnd: /dev/dsp Device or resource busy.

I was never able to clear this error message so of course it doesn't work.
This is not a gmfsk problem. This simply means that some other program
has the soundcard locked, and gmfsk is unable to access it. You need to
find out what program is using the soundcard. For example, I have to
shut down Skype before I can run gmfsk.

Wait a sec. I'm not as into hardware/OS interaction as much as I'd like to be, but are you saying that Linux can't duplex sound? Or am I interpreting this wrong? On Winblows (yes, sadly, I use it), multiple programs can use my laptop's sound card at once, but on Shrike I can't listen to music and have sounds for Gaim or anything else at the same time. Weirdly enough, that includes terminal console beeps. Is this just my way outdated Red Hat Linux 9, or is this Linux in general?
What I found on FC4 is that the sound mixer is the culprit. It comes out of the box in simplex mode. You can play with the mixer and break tiny chains and finally it works in duplex made.
 The FC5 wrinkle is that it sends up a warning when it is not set up
in duplex. I might be able to get FC5 working with what I know now....
