I have an old iBook G3 (900mhz I think...the last of the G3 ibooks IIRC). it's sitting around collecting dust, and I was thinking about installing linux on it. It's not for any particular reason so much as for curiosity...while it's certainly not a necessary requirement for me, I do think it might be helpful to familiarize myself with linux, just for my own edification. So my questions/thoughts are these: 1) Which PPC linux variant is good for a beginner? 2) Once I get linux up and running, is there anything special or unique I can do with it? 3) Are there any good books or web resources that can help get started and help me with the process? 4) The cd drive is broken on the iBook, so i'd have to d/l the linux distro directly OR find a way to boot the iBook via firewire cd drive...any thoughts there? If PPC linux is really underpowered and a bad idea, I am not adverse to tracking down an old windows laptop or even biting the bullet and picking up an EEE...I just figured since the hardware is the most expensive component, and I have a mostly decent computer doing nothing, it could be fun.
