Powerbook 180

I just got a free Apple Powerbook 180.

I has Mac OS 7 on it.

Its a cool looking machine, and I'd hate to throw it away. Anyone know if its possible to install linux on it?

I think the 180 is an Old World machine, I would poke around the YDL site for a while checking for hardware compatability, offhand I think they've ditched old world.

If this thing runs on an m68k, Debian still has a port to that:

And of course, NetBSD will run on just about anything.
