alsaconf is pretty useless for powermacs. You just have two options,
either your sound chip is supported by snd-aoa or you are stuck with
the old dmasound_pmac driver. With a recent udev and kernel snd-aoa
should be autoloaded. If not you can try manually loading the various
snd-aoa-* modules.

If your model is not supported by snd-aoa you need to add dmasound_pmac
to /etc/modules.

You can check if a sound card is detected by looking into
