I managed to have sound working on my '99 pwr book G3 by switch
from bootx1.1.1 to bootx1.1.3, The 1.1.3 version is located at: 1.1.3.sit

Don'n know why this is required but thought I saw a message to this
effect on this list...

I am using xmms to play MP3 files and it all works flawlessly!

Now if we could get mouse buttons 2/3 emulation working or have
external USB mouse support in place I would be willing to drop
usage of my x86 laptop!
