Yes, go to distrowatch.com and search for SPARC. Yours is SPARC, right?

Older PowerPC Macintosh computers also qualify as RISC processors, as far as I know. So it could be some iMac as well.

NetBSD supports a wide range of common and rare hardware, but for SPARC and PowerPC architectures you will certainly find some Linux flavour.
