    You can search for all distrobutions here. Just select PPC under platform.

    I use Gentoo. If you've never used linux before, I can't recommend it. If you have used linux, but have never used Gentoo, then you are missing out.

    Check out the Ubuntu live cd. It's probably the fastest/easiest way to try Linux on a Mac, plus, you don't actually have to install anything. Some other distros with PPC versions are: Gentoo, Suse, Yellowdog, Debian, etc.

    I second Ubuntu. I would strongly recommend that you download the liveCD (it won't affect your system at all).
