Is the internal speaker dead? Can you still hear music or anything else though it?
Sorry, I can't help you with the networking issue. There is a networking thread under the FAQ's part of the forum. Your question might be answered there.

Do you hear Alert sounds at all? Is the Alert Volume turned up in the Sound preference panel?

If so and you still have no Chime, you might try resetting the PRAM by holding Command+Option+P+R right after you hit the power button. Hold down all 4 keys and you should hear the chime. Let it chime 2 times or so then let go.

Reseting the PRAM has fix this on a few older Macs for me.

Opps, Welcome to Mac Forums!!

Welcome to Mac-Forums, Racing666.

Could you specify which OS X version you are using? 10.3.x is Panther and Tiger is 10.4.x.

I remember that the first couple update versions of Tiger, 10.4.1 and 10.4.2 had some users losing their startup sound so it might help us pinpoint your problem better if you were precise with the OS version you are using i.e. for example, not OS X Panther but 10.3.9.

The limit is 128GB hard drive, max. If you expand the Standard Hard Drive: section in this info here, you will see:

Quote:
"*6.0 GB hard drive standard in M6668LL/A and M7556LL/A, 12.0 GB hard drive standard in M6666LL/A . It can officially support two Ultra ATA/33 hard drives -- drives larger than 128 GB are not supported. It could be configured with Ultra2 SCSI drives at the time of purchase as a build-to-order option."
