OK, I'm on AMD64, but since I have £7 credit in Skype I got my finger out, 
searched around and found I could get it working with linux32. Along the way 
I've got Flash and Java working in a 32 bit Firefox. (BTW, there's a fonts 
problem with Firefox 2).

Unfortunately it doesn't work:

./skype: error while loading shared libraries: libasound.so.2: cannot open 
shared object file: No such file or directory
