    according to my VPC6 readme:

    Unfortunately, I cannot find a distribution list on the support site, but look around and see if you can find anything--

    my guess would be yes...

    I can't say for sure, but I'll say yes, judging from the past: VPC has been shipped with Red Hat Linux. It emulates the x86 architecture....
    But, why not install Yellow Dog Linux on your Mac?

    I have installed both Mandrake 8 and Lindows (don't laugh) on VPC 6. They both ran painfully slow. Not even worth the trouble. I am using a tibook 1 gig with 1 gig of ram. The only things that run decent is win 98/2k under vpc 6. Don't even bother with linux through vpc. Instead look for a native PPC version of linux to install.
