I feel I should mention the recently implemented Isochronous audio option so you may be able to get sound output for this model, via USB audio, possibly using one of the two Behringer (UCA 222 and UCA 202) models already tested by "Tcheko
" in the Development Team, or try one of the other working devices that have been tested by other users.
You may be in the fortunate situation where you can save the AHI prefs for such a device as being the only audio device to use, as it seems there is no other available/working for your PowerBook model, so you can keep the USB device plugged in for each reboot/switch on, and actually get sound output to work consistently for your hardware.
I tried the Griffin iMic, and a C-Media USB audio device on my MacMini, but once de-activated they both, individually, froze my system, requiring a switch off / reboot, so I don't want to have to suffer that inconvenience, of unnecessary reboots, but you may get better mileage with your limited options, just thought I'd mention it to you, but as far as I am aware there is no System Volume Control that works with this audio option - apart from using Jukebox, where you can use the internal volume control of that program to control volume level. Maybe you can control its volume with any other program you use that has some form of internal volume control.
I just hope this information is of some use to you.
