Hi Rafael,

It may be that the permissions for the sound-device are set so that it 
is accessible only by root.  Even if that is the case your distribution 
may use a console-permissions model in which users that are logged into 
the console are allowed to access the devices.  If this is the case you 
will have a file somewhere in /etc that deals with console permissions 
(possibly /etc/security/console.perms, but this is distribution specific 
AFAIK).  I think you should ask this question on a mailing list specific 
to your distribution rather than on this list which deals only with 
XFree86 setup.
