Problem with /dev/dsp

Hi all,
Feisty user here.  I've got a Creative Soundblaster card and some Labtec
microphone (yes, Labtech.  I didn't know they made mikes either).
Unfortunately, my mike doesn't work with Skype, Audacity, or anything that
requires a mike.  I think it has to do with the fact that /dev/dsp is owned
by root and won't let anyone else read/write.  Whenever I try to change the
permissions, it always reverts.  Same with everything under /dev/snd/.
