Any good guides for this?

My Leopard iBook is very sluggish with regards to internet video and other general tasks.

I want to strip it out and install a really lightweight memory efficient linux distro that will allow me to play youtube videos/iplayer/tvcatchup and load firefox in less than 5 mins etc.

advice appreciated.

PS - I use CentOS and WindowMaker at the moment on another machine and I really like it so recommendations for a similar setup suitable for the iBook would be cool. \


Cheers.

Linux on PPC has no official flash player so anything that uses flash is not going to work the way you expect.
