Advice like this really does make me shudder sometimes.
Try 'ls -ltr /dev/dsp'
You'll see that it's (likely) owned by root and the group is audio.
Put the required users into the audio group (groupmod -G audio $user)
and have them logout/in.
Security is there for a reason, 666 is the number of the beast - not an
acceptable parameter to chmod.
