Debian may be of help ... start at http://www.debian.org/ports/powerpc/

Coincidentally, there's a how-to for exactly that model[1], though the

Right now, there are scr1pt k1dd13s plotting to DDoS my network, my co-lo
server is not responding  to pings and  the people that I IRC with may be
involved in both.  I'm  sysadmin Graeme Mathieson and this is the longest
day of my life.                               http://www.wossname.org.uk/
