Fix for "cannot use midi auditory icons in outloud server"

1) I'm attaching /etc/rc.d/init.d/sound from my RH 6.0 box
--incidentally it seems to be on-existent in RH 6.2 

Also I mispoke when I said the synth voices were loaded from
that file --though it would be a good place to do it
nevertheless --I have a line in /etc/conf.modules 
that loads the voices after loading the awe module --so the
following extract from conf.modules is soundblaster

Extract from conf.modules:

alias sound sb 
Attached as a mime attachment in /etc/rc.d/init.d/sound 
though it does little that is interesting;
in the case of my laptop I use that file to cleanly unload
and reload the sound drivers upon suspend/resume.


pre-install sound insmod sound dmabuf=1 
options opl3 io=0x388 
alias midi awe_wave 
post-install awe_wave /bin/sfxload /etc/midi/GU11-ROM.SF2
