    Talking [SOLVED] Help installing linux on PPC G5...


    Hi everyone!
    I have an old Mac, With PPC G5 2Ghz... and 2Gb ram...
    It works veeeeeeeeeery slow! I can't format it for now cause my mom has pictures on it for now....
    The question is:
    Is there any distro that still supports G5s?
    I need it to have Firefox, Skype and an Image viewer..... That's about all my grampa needs...
    And I need it to work live, before I install it...
    Thanks a lot for all your help!!!

    Debian works very well on my Mac mini, if that helps.
