No sound and CD-Rom on fast thin client

Bug Description

It seems that my thin client (Core2Duo 2.0Ghz) is a bit to fast to boot and that when reaching the point where the cdpinger and pulseaudio should be started /dev/dsp and /dev/cdrom don't yet exist.
The best fix would be to wait for udev to finish creating the different devices before running the ltsp script.
A workaround is to add a "sleep 1" in the initrd script which then give enough time to udev to do its job.

I think the solution to this is to start cdpinger, jetpipe, and pulse from udev, and simply avoiding the whole "initscript is running but device isn't there" problem.

I'm doing my tests with a CoreDuo laptop at the office and never saw that kind of race condition again. It seems that the issue got somehow fixed. Marking it fix released.
