Novice failure

Greetings all,

It is a total new experience for me to use CU-SeeMe, but most of my friends
use it religiously, so I decided to give it a try. Only a try, since I
haven't been able to make it work.

I'm currently in Greece and my friends use a camera and their IBM for their
CU needs (plus the Enchanced Version for IBMs). I have a Mac PB PPC 5300cs
(System 7.6.1) with 24 MB RAM and 800MB HD. I don't have a camera but all
my friends insist that I can receive video, no need to send any (or have a
camera), and just use the sound to communicate. Chatting is easy, I have
accomplished that and only that. But sound, no. Nothing. I'm using 0.87b3
version for Macs. I've searched in the proposed sites for technical advice
(in Cornell's site and then in every site they recommended), each and every
link. Audio is not given priority (and rightly so), but... my problem still
remains, albeit my friends' attempts to help.

Given the total failure of my CU-SeeMe experiment, I would be grateful if
you pointed out to me some URL where I can find step-by-step instructions
on how to configure/use CU for Macs and especially how to speak to the
other people (if there are any of the sort). Naturally, I would greatly
appreciate any advice from experienced members with some time to spare,
reaching my personal mailbox.

Thank you for you time.
