I got it to work (Skype beta static on CentOS 5.4 x86_64) by playing
with "Capture" in the volume control.

(- right click on your volume control applet)
- open volume control
- Edit > Preferences... : check "Capture"
- play with the slider and buttons of the new tab: for example I have
the capture slider to max and both buttons active (no red cross)

Also make sure the Front Mic (or equivalent) is active in the main
"Playback" tab.
