Now it has been a few years since I implemented an Edubuntu lab, but I
was under the impression that all processes ran on the centralized
server, and thus sounds would go to those speakers -- not the thin
clients.  You would need to somehow redirect the sounds for each
users' processes, I believe.

This is one of the reasons I recommend DRBL over Edubuntu for hosts
that are not really 'thin clients' -- ie, they have their own disk, 3d
video card, sound, etc...
