I thinking of buying a PowerBook and I want to install Linux. Can you tell what is the best and easiest Distribution to install and if supports all the drivers.

Thank you

Nothing supports the hardware as well as MacOS does... but YellowDog is probably the best known for using on a Powerbook. I believe there is a how-to on Gentoo's site for installing on a PowerBook as well.
