Enable OS X audio on older Macs System
For those brave souls running the PB on G3-upgraded 7300 to 9600 models, one annoyance is a lack of sound, due to the different sound chip in these machines.

Ryan Rempel has posted an explanation page that explains why it doesn't work, and a downloadable package to enable audio on these older machines.

If you're the type that likes to do everything yourself, he's also included instructions. Start a terminal session, and:
su root
cd /System/Library/Extensions/AppleScreamerAudio.kext
vi [or] emacs [or] pico Info-macos.xml
Find the line that reads
<string>davbus</string>
Below it, insert
<string>awacs</string>
Save the file, restart, and you should have sound.
