Thank you all for help. I'm still thinking about which distribution of PPC linux I should use... I think I'll try Slackintosh (slackware 4 macintosh) coz I have a slackware on my PC.
The other thing is size:
I've got only 24 MB of RAM on my powerbook, so the swap partition sould be 48 MB ?
And there's only about 700-750 of Disk space, so I wonder if That's enogh. Of course I need only the basics, I need no X, no build in games or such stuff. Will 700 or 750 MB be enogh ?
The Slackintosh refused to cooperate with me ;] so I chose Mandrake 9,1 PPC.
The problem is, that when the installer switches to the "non-text" mode the screen looks.... hmm strange - I mean i can't read anything.
btw. I have an old iMac
Sorry for mistakes and the unclear way of describing what's the problem, please understand that I'm not only a foreginer but also a newbie to linux.
Thanks for your help
