AMANDA for PowerPC processor


I read that AMANDA is only for Intel processors, but I have a PowerPC processor and I want to install AMANDA.
Someone said that I have to find the distro of my RH and there should be AMANDA packages available.

My distro is:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 7)

Where can i find AMANDA for my distro??

Just to say, Amanda doesn't much care what your processor is. Your OS and compilers deal with that. If you are using an Amanda package for your distribution, then the person who maintains that package has dealt with it. You could download the source and build it. Historically, it has run on just about any Unix/Linux with whatever hardware that was on.
