I doubt that you can do that with XDMCP, and I don't think that
redirecting /dev/dsp0 will be simple. Back in the good old days when I
was using the Enlightenment window manager there was the Enlightened
Sound Daemon (EsounD, http://www.tux.org/~ricdude/EsounD.html), that
could relay sound playback to machines via the network. EsounD
development has stopped in 2000.
Other ways to accomplish this may be http://pulseaudio.org/, the aRts
project (http://www.arts-project.org/) or http://jackaudio.org/ (the
latter site lacks its database server and may not produce any content).
