   Thank you, it works.  (I don't need to make /emul/linux/dev/mixer.)

   But the output sound is *very* noisy.  It's hard to hear what
he/she says.  My machine is ThinkPad 560 and it has Sound Blaster
compatible audio.  Of cource /dev/audio can play u-law audio data
without problems.

   Video of Linux version is fine.  Thank you again for your advice.
