    If it means anything to you, I've had no trouble at all with Fedora 9 on my Macbook Pro 4,1. Granted, I'm on an Intel chip and you're using PPC, but Fedora's a pretty solid distro over all and it runs pretty well. I actually have a friend who runs Fedora 8 on his G4, and he has no bug issues. Just make sure you get a two/three-button mouse. =)

    ubuntu had a ppc version last time i checked. should run quite nicely.
    biggest problem i had with linux on mac is figuring out how to boot the dam thing from cd
