There are no drivers for any Creative SB Live product for OSX. I previously made the mistake of purchasing one of those cards to use in my G4 DA and it did not work. They will work in OS9 however.

Your PC card will not work out of the box in your Mac, but theoretically you could flash its BIOS with a Mac edition BIOS. I'm not sure if this is possible, but either way you still can't use it with OSX.

If your on-board sound works, then I would simply use that. If you must have discrete audio, you can get a M-Audio PCI Mac card. They have several that will work with OSX.
