    Hi everybody, I'm new to Linux but I want to learn more by installing some flavor on a seperate partition. Any suggestions?

    Don't think so, not right now anyway. I do think the demand is out there, so maybe in the not so distant future. Stay tuned.

    I used Yellow Dog Linux on my iBook (Dual USB) and it worked like a charm. Only reason I got rid of it was because I didn't use it enough to justify the space being occupied by another OS. Give it a whirl and see what you think. :)

    There is also LinuxPPC. But unfortunatly, there seems to be no more development since it's last release, partially due to the release of OS X.

    With Solaris just having pulled/reinstatedsupport for Intel (those folks with 90% marketshare), I don't think there is a snowball's chance of seeing Solaris for Moto.

    An even better idea... just install OS X. :D
