We play our on hold spiel using mpg123 on a 486, works fine, and sadly I
haven't bothered to write a script to check if it's working or not, because
it hasn't failed in 2 years of running, apart from the odd power failure,
and it runs on startup anyway.....
If a "hack" works, who cares how it seems? I very much doubt whether the
people on the other end of the phone will ;)

Sounds to me like you don't hold your documentation skills in very high
regard....just write them like your target audience is a windows
ok.....maybe you have a point ;)
