Yes, you certainly can. The version of Linux you need to obtain depends on what kind of iMac you have, however. If it's an older iMac that uses the PowerPC chip (About this Mac should tell you), then you need the PowerPC or PPC version of Linux. This is different from the regular X86 version.
If you have a newer iMac that has an Intel Core Duo or Core 2 Duo then you want the regular X86 version of Linux. Also, have you decided what distribution you want to use? Most of the popular distributions have both PowerPC and X86 versions, so it's not a matter of what will or won't work. For more information on choosing a distro, try this thread:

I know Im going to start with ubuntu and when I become better I will use gentoo. I use gnome not kde
Sorry but this was only to see if I can use linux on a Mac and see if I'd be wasting my money on something that I can't use free software for. Though thank you I now know it is ok to install Imac but i wanted Intel Duo core not Nvidia proprietary drivers are giving me trouble on the current machine I have.
THough I have one question Are there proprietary wireless drivers? I need to buy one for my Inspiron 2500 I'm going to repair and fix it.

The Apple Store (U.S.) - iMac
The one on the far right has an nvidia driver and right now I don't know which imac is the best to have (the one where the drivers install themselves). SO far I had to manually install nvidia drivers. I don't know how to do it we'll and also sound drivers. SO basically which imac is the safest and easiest to install linux on to.
