Linux PPC/SuSe PPC can run on the 8500, it a 603 I think. The problem for
them is money, I recommend a PPC 5400(180Mhz, 80Megs) running SuSE 7.0that I
own for them, at the price of $150, PPC 5400 that the grandfather of the
iMac.  The guy paid $6000 for this Mac, and the guy doesn't want to even
hear new hardware. So it doesn't matter I am talk to a wall.

For those that like use Linux on a PPC, SuSE is much easier on PPC side that
LinuxPPC. LinuxPPC is a RedHat clone and I don't like the fact that how it
does things but that me, plus I have used SuSE from the dark ages of Linux
and have much better luck with it, than Red Hat.

I've hear that Yellowdog is good but everytime I go Microcenter to pick up a
copy of  YD, it's been sold, and since I have been using SuSE at work on
Intels from 5.3 until the lastest 7.3, that what I why use on PPC.

I am dealing with just cheap people. So again thanks for all the comments
and info.

MkLinux was the 68K Verision of Linux that ran on Atari ST, Mac 68K, and
Amiga or any computer with 68000 cpu.

Thanks guys,
