Volume at 0 when booting the Oneric/Precise CD's

Thanks Attila. I ran ubuntu-bug after raising the volume and rebooting,
so the system was no longer exhibiting this behavior when I ran
ubuntu-bug. I see this behavior when booting from the install CD and
then on the first boot after the install. Would it make sense to
reinstall Precise and run ubuntu-bug after that first reboot and before
raising the volume? I'll need sighted assistance for this, so it may
take me a day or two to get to this. What about running ubuntu-bug from
the Live CD itself, again before raising the volume? Again I'd need
sighted assistance, but would ubuntu-bug even work in this environment?

Also, I don't think the sound is actually muted. I had my wife take a
look at the screen, and the horn wasn't crossed out. The volume was set
to 0 though, and I did have to raise it from 0.
