You can try Ubuntu Live CD for PPC. There might be some quirks. With all Linux distributions, it comes in a compatible image format. You just need to select burn image or something similar. I suggest using Mac OS X instead of installing Linux because Mac OS X already has parts of unix/linux components in it.
