For all the windowing stuff and input you can use the GLUT. It''s availible for Linux, Windows and Mac.
For sound you could use the OpenAl. It''s a sound library in OpenGl style, which supports 3D sound. But It''s still under development (maybe it has already changed).

FMOD is a great free (for non-commercial) sound library. This is the best, what I ever saw. Supports MP3, MOD, S3M,... 3D sound effects, EAX, A3D,... It has easy-to-use, great API.

Use OpenAL for audio (u get it at Creative''s web site), Glut for windowing/keyboard/mouse. If you want to cross-platform networking try HawkNL. I don''t beleive HawkNL is really cross-platform right now but it will in future versions (if someone has the time to port it).
