No, I don't even have a Puppy Linux/Geexbox on a CD. Why are you asking about these OS's in particular?
They are free, they will load entirely from a CD (even on very old machines), and they likely have enough pre-configured drivers that any sound card will either work properly or not at all. It is useful for troubleshooting.
Ok, since, I was thinking of putting old free bee games on this PC prior to donation, and it already has a good, working CD-ROM drive, do I really have to worry about these connectors or not?
If anyone plays a CD-ROM game that uses redbook audio (or if anyone should decide to use the old PC for playing CDs), then unless the CD-ROM drive has a headphone jack on the front, the PC will not be useful for that purpose.
Actually, it is distinctly possible that no one will ever use this computer again once you donate it.
