Have a look at the audioop, wave and winsound modules.

Also PyGame has some tools that try to do platform independent audio...

Access to the sound card is another matter since that is non standard 
and determined by the sound drivers exposed by the manufacturer. The 
drivers may well vary in capability depending ion the OS in use etc.

You can also use ctypes for direct access to the Windows audio libraries 
but that's a whole lot more complicated!
