Yellow Dog Linux is certainly one of the most popular PowerPC Linux distributions, but there are PowerPC versions of Debian, Gentoo, Fedora, and Ubuntu as well. I would recommend that regardless of what distribution you choose, you make sure and install something other than KDE or Gnome for your graphical interface, as a 200mHz processor with only 4MB of video RAM won't be able to handle them very well.Registered Linux user #270181
