I have the same type of machine and found out that sound does not work
reliably except if using OSS with esd on top.
ALSA changes the pitch (about 110% of the normal speed), and with the
future removal of the OSS drivers from the 2.6 tree I feel that the
sound on PPC issue will strike a lot of uses.
