Right.  I suggest going to and looking at the docs
available in the MSDN library.  That, perhaps coupled with the code 
that implements /dev/dsp in Cygwin should be enough to get one started
on the basics of sound support.  But let's keep any further discussion of
this subject here Cygwin specific, OK?

BTW, I'm not directing my reply at Corinna, in case it's not clear. ;-)
