If I set up a virtual machine in VMware player using linux I don't get any sound from it. With Windows the sound works no problem. Any ideas why?

If you run Linux stand-alone; i.e., without VMware, does the sound work?
If so, it implies something wrong with VMware, or with the configuration of VMware or the Linux software.

If not, something wrong with Linux.

Since sound works with Windows, I assume the hardware is OK.
