    I have a couple questions for any powermac/performa 61XX (pizza box) owners regarding linux support

    (1) Do any of you run linux? I have found tuxppc which seems to be in a state of confusion right now (see TuxPPC website ) and Yellow Dog, which doesn't support the NuBus line of powermacs.

    (2) Are there other flavors that will run on a powermac 6100 with Sonnet G3 upgrade?

    (3) If you managed to get linux running, do you have Apache w/PHP and MySQL running and what steps did you take to get it running?

    To make a very long story mediumly short, I am acquiring some left overs from my wifes school and wanted to set one up to be a simple webserver for my website. Its written using PHP and MySQL and I would love to get it up on my own "server." Since Mac OS X will NOT run on NuBus powermacs, I am stuck on linux, which I am OK with. However, after much googling I can't seem to find a solid resource for running linux on a 6100.

    So if there are any of you out there, please do respond and include links if possible.

    Thanks in advance,
    JK
