Wine requires direct access to sound device(s) to make sound. This is true for both ALSA and OSS driver back-ends. However most sound servers are not compatible with neither of these back-ends. This also true about pulse-audio - it is not fully compatible with Wine.

If you using new distro (Fedora 8, Ubuntu 8.04, SuSE 11) and do not have sound you should:
1. Report problem to your distro support
2. Disable or even remove pulse-audio
