Try a different sound card. I've had trouble with freebsd 4.x not
working with a sound card, and the sound card works fine with
linux 2.4.x, both freebsd and linux using ntp-dev code.

I've had a sb awe64 (gold) and an sb live both working with freebsd.
An sb awe32 and an sb es1373 did not work with freebsd, although
the es1373 works fine with linux, so I know its not the particular
card. One motherboard audio device also did not work with freebsd,
although I don't recall the chipset on the motherboard. Another
motherboard chipset works fine with linux and ntp audio drivers.

Or, fix the freebsd audio driver. Other folks have complained that
the 4.x series has some broken audio stuff in it (WRT ntp working).
