I'd give Lubuntu a try. They used to have good PPC support and most of the default applications are rather light weight as far as system requirements go.

You could do a netinstall of Debian Jessie. That's the last version that supports PPC architecture. Then build with whatever lightweight WM/DE that you wanted to use.
