Couple of questions about UbuntuPPC

Hi to everybody!
Yesterday I have downloaded a new PPC.ISO and found that networking and 
sound are now (almost) working on the iMac G3. Great!

Ethernet connection is OK however, I still can't get Airport to 
connect. Does anybody and if yes, how?
IS WEP encryption supported with Airport networking or should I turn it 
off? (I tried, no luck)
Nowhere, after installing, is there any question made about the 
encryption Key.

Flash plugin for Firefox. Downloaded but doesn't work. Do I need to 
compile the source code?

Furthermore, I like some kind of support for the mouse. Standard works 
but my two button + scrollwheel macally mouse doesnt't work at all. 
(actually, it works on my intell Ubutntu install)
Any hacks available  for the xserver and the scroll mouse?

Last, but not least: Finally, I can no play mp3's but not a normal 
audio CD. Any modules missing?
Same for Totem. I have sound but no video output.
Do I need codecs for playing AVI's and Mpegs? are they available for 

Thanks a lot in advance for any help.
