    Yes. You can dual-boot with any Linux PPC distro. Mandrake, Yelow-Dog and Gentoo come to mind.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    Not being a Mac user my self and thus having no experience with Linux on Mac, I can't make a suggestion on which you should use. However, if you have no experience with Linux at all, I'd suggest you steer clear from Gentoo for the time being.
    Some time back I watched a video on installing YellowDog, Which is a RedHat RPM based distro. I seem to recall it wasn't difficult to install. The same should go for Mandrake as it is geared towards beginners.
