Best distro for Mac Tibook?

I have a Macintosh Tibook G4 laptop with a 60G drive that I want to dual partition with OSX and Linux. Is there a list somewhere of Linux builds that are Mac-compatible or can anyone recommend what they feel to be the best build for a Mac Tibook?

I believe Yellow Dog Linux is designed for the Mac. You can get it from LinuxISO I haven't used Yellow Dog myself and don't know much about it, so apologies in advance if this turns out to be a bum steer -- J.W.
