Linux on PowerMac


Hi, I'm running Redhat 9on my PC. I also have an old PowerMac G3 (233 mhz, 192 mb RAM, 4 gb HDD which I will upgrade). What is a good Linux distro for Macs? I'm looking for something similar to Redhat, as I'm relatively new to Linux (I know how to compile from source and thats about it, I only installed Redhat 9 a month ago). Thanks for any help!

Gentoo also has a PPC port that will work on a G3.
