Audio problem with new notebook

Hello List, 
I've been using AfterStep as my window manager since about 1997 and I absolutely love it.  I've had it on multiple desktops and am now on my second laptop.  Thus the problem.  
This laptop is a DELL (if that has anything to do with it) using RedHat 7.0, AfterStep-1.8.8-3,  the OSS commercial modules for sound.  Those work great and when I use /usr/bin
/play <soundname> it works great, when I use /usr/lib/oss/play <soundname> it works great, but when I put any of my sounds into the Audio module I get two static bursts of abou
t 1/2 second each for each sound.  I started AfterStep with --debug and put the output to a file, here's what I get:

*AudioPlayCmd  /usr/bin/play     (from inside ~GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/Audio)

accepted module connection

I'm not sure what's going on, it sounds like both are trying to play a binary file that is not a sound file and it thinks that the 'extra' stuff (the actual sound file) is ignored.  Any hints?  

This is a direct cut and paste from my old laptop, using AfterStep 1.8,  into the home directory of the new laptop and the old one plays the sounds fine.

help??

Thanks
