[CentOS] FreeNX : forward audio from server to client ?

I've had bad luck myself with sound - but using NoMachine...  And, for me 
it only seems to work where sound is played for a Windows client machine 
to a NoMachine CentOS server.  The only sound I can get is using XMMS... 
If I start a web browser (like Firefox), I do not hear anything if I go to 
Youtube or the like...

I'd love to know how to get sound working as well :)
