Decent Distro for PPC G3 mac 128mb of ram
As the title says I'm looking for a decent Distro that won't use too much processing power or RAM on my PPC G3 iBook. 500MHZ, 128MB of RAM, and a 10 gig HD.

On my PPC G3 128Mb of RAM I run Xubuntu PPC. Use the Alternate disk to install- it used 64Mb AND NOT the live CD - it needs 192 Mb.

I do alternative or net installs on my g3's. i will install the basic debian system without x and then go back and add xorg, xdm, fluxbox and the usual x apps. You can be more surgical about what apps to install. I have done that on a 3 gig drive, but stored data externally.
