The 'snd' module is one of the ALSA modules.  I complied the alsa-0.9
source deb package.  Once  this is done and the modules are installed,
they should appear in /lib/[kernelversion]/modules/alsa.  Then fire up
modconf, uninstall the dma modules.  At the bottom of the top menu is a
menu item 'alsa'.  Choose it.  Then choose snd-powermac, snd-pcm and snd
pcm-oss.  This will install the relevant modules including 'snd' into
the kernel.

It worked for me anyway!
