I'm running NetBSD/i386 with a SoundBlaster 16 and can't figure out how 
to get stereo output out of /dev/audio. I've made the AUDIO_SETINFO ioctl 
to change the number of channels to 2, but when I write to the device, it 
sounds like mono to me :) I guess what I want to know is what format the 
data I write needs to be in. Right now, I'm writing out interleaved left 
sample/right sample... should I be doing something else?
