    I don't think that SuSE 9.2 is also available for Mac. If you want to try installing SuSE on Mac, go to their site and download ppc version of SuSE 10.
    However, you shouldn't expect it to be a simple and easy task. Make sure you read all about the installation process before doing anything.
    If it's your first time trying Linux on Mac, I would recommend Ubuntu PowerPC Live CD.
    You could also try Fedoara ppc, or Debian powerpc: stable and testing versions.
    Search their websites for specific installation instructions. Also, find some good tutorial of HOWTO install Linux on G5.
    Good luck!
