For the modem, check the driver page that Conexant has for it.
For the sound, I use ALSA, but with dmasound is even easier... just
check some of the online installation guides available at
www,linux-laptops.com for the Apple PowerPC and read there. Everything
you will need so far ir there, and for the rest, you will always have
this list :-)
Congrats on your installation :-)
