I''m interested in finding out what has happened to DirectSound with the release of DirectX8? has it been exterminated like DirectDraw, and integrated into DirectX Audio? If so, then how would I use DirectX Audio to play a sound? Thanks.

No, DirectSound and DirectMusic are still seperate. However, they now come under the term "DirectAudio". DirectSound has changed very little whereas DirectMusic has many more features. In the future I could see DirectSound being made redundant by DirectMusic but, for now, DirectSound still has its place.

I would suggest getting the DX8 SDK and checking out the "What''s new in DirectX Audio" section of the help file. This will give you the full list of changes.
