disabling buttons while sound file is playing

I've been trying to disable a set of buttons while a sound file is playing
(so that any mouse clicks while the sound is playing are ignored).  But the
following doesn't seem to work - the mouseUp action simply takes place after
the sound stops playing):

on openCard
  disable button 8
  play "oct2002/sa1.aif"
  wait until the sound is done
  enable button 8
end openCard

Another query:  how do I specify multiple buttons without using a repeat
control structure? (e.g., button 8 to 12 doesn't seem to do it)
