    A lot of distros have PowerPC ports such as openSUSE and Ubuntu. I think though that the traditional favourite is Yellow Dog Linux

    Terra Soft -- Linux for PowerStation, Playstation, PS3, QS22, Apple PowerPC, and IBM, AMCC, and Freescale Power architecture chips.

    Although it keeps reminding you to buy it is possible to download it for free from the public mirrors as far as I am aware.

    Let us know what you go with.
