What distro can I run on this laptop????
Thanks.
I believe you can try either Debian, Mandrake, Yellow Dog, or Gentoo. Those are the only ones that I know that have a distro for PPC.

From the YDL faq:
The following will simply NOT FUNCTION with Yellow Dog Linux
WGS 9150, 8150, 6150
PowerBook 5300, 2300, and 1400
Performa 63xx, 62xx, 61xx, 54xx, 53xx, and 52xx
IBM RS6000 models: Power series 830, 850, 40P




Look here, the 1400 is supported by debian:
