Mandrake for Power PC

Or go to www.linuxiso.org and on the search section go to the sort by Architecture and choose PowerPC

I don't know much about a mac but Linux is made for the processor. Macs use a Motorola processor I think, so you'd want a linux made for a m68k or powerPC architecture. I think.
