On the ibook2, there is no direct analog connection between the CDROM
and the sound hardware (on a PC, say, there is a four-wire cable running
from the CDROM to the sound card). You'll have to use something that
reads the CD digitially, such as xmms-cdread. AFAIK, that's the only
thing in Debian that will do this (unless you cobble something together
with cdda2wav).
