	This bypasses the operating system altogether and assumes that
there is a connection between the CD player audio out and an input to the
sound 'card'. It is common for this to be absent and to rely on a software
player such as vlc or mplayer.

	If the CD is connected internally then there may be a mixer setting
you can turn up to hear it, otherwise you will probably hear sound from the
headphone jack of the CD player (if there is one).
