I'm not to familiar with Mac's but I'm assuming the procs in these is going
to be the PowerPC architecture.  If it were me I would start out installing
YellowDog as I think everything should "just work" with that install.  Also,
I know Debian and Ubuntu have PPC releases even though Ubuntu recently
stopped officially supporting PPC.
