About two months ago I tried audacity, but it only allowed me to choose the default built-in sound card device.

I like OpenBSD, it is my favorite OS, but knowing multimedia is not its strength, sometimes one has to be practical.
Also, the original Akai turntable went bad beyond repair (too high speed), so after 5 weeks my daughter got a refund and bought me a new one last week. So I couldn't follow the path you outlined

I did not have a DVD-RW available and knowing I could mount the 6 CD iso's, I decided to go that route.

My daughter also gave me a German C'T Linux magazine, which thoroughly as C'T always does, discussed a couple of Linux distrubutions. It also included a DVD with iso images of the featured distros.

I opted for Pure:dyne, a multimedia oriented Live distro, based on Debian. Unfortunately while still booting, Debian tries to mount the OpenBSD partitions, friendly informs me that is fails to do so and then quits

Thanks for the Slax tip. If CentOS doesn't work out I surely will give it a try.

My first endeavor away from Win95 in 1998 was Redhat, and being familiar with the installation, I decided to try CentOS, not knowing that Redhat has diverged rather far away from multimedia support.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
