No immediate answer, have not found time to do the ppc 14.04 install on the
iBook to see what my experience with it will be.  But the "apple user"
subsection of the ubuntu forums may offer some insights . . . along with
the "PowerPCFAQ" . . . .  Two threads that I just saw there, I've posted to
the "[PPC] Testers needd for PowerPC 14.04"  . . .     And, then I see
another thread "[PPC] 14.04 Sound problem . . ."  Not having done the
install I have't checked whether "lsmod" would show the sound modules, but
perhaps they can be installed by "additional drivers"???
