So, if there is no internal mic, and the mic jack requires an external mic with its own power source, then that answers two of the three puzzles.
Only to introduce another - why the *&%&^% does Apple do this? Is it too much to ask for a real microphone input on the machine somewhere?

So, why does a perfectly good USB headset, which shows up in the prefs immediately, and works flawlessly on a PC, suddenly stop transmitting/receiving the instant it is connected to a G5?
So my first question is whether or not sound keeps coming out of your speakers when you do this.

Open iTunes and play a song. Now plug in the headset. Did anything happen? Or did the sound keep going out of the speaker(s)?

Ok, now go into the sound control panel. Do you see a listing for the headset?

If you do, select it. What happens?
