try the alsa drivers:


i'm using them on my powerbook g4. they should work fine for your machine. 
once you've installed them, be aware theres a little bug where you have to adjust the 
mic boost level on the (alsa)mixer to unmute the audio.

think they should be available through apt-get as well? but you might get the inferior
0.5 version of alsa in the stable distro. you really want the 0.9 version.
