I successfully installed several versions on several RS6000 models.
Unfortunately I found no usable free versions, all free versions failed, only the commercial Linux versions succeeded.
So, you have to buy a commercial Linux for RS6000 version. You will have to buy it from IBM, and then, ask for a version for model 270.
