fedora on Emac's

hi there, iv'e just been given an old mac computer and i've turned it on and had a bit of a play with it and now that i've scene the mac interface and decided that i hate it i was wondering if i could install a copy of fedora on it, i've done a bit of searching on the web and i see places that say it's possible but no one seams to be offering me the iso's to download. i was wondering if they take the normally fedora CD's or something different and if so could someone please tell me were i could download them from?

and also is it as simple as download the iso's burning them to CD and then installing booting from CD, just like a normal PC?

thanks a bundle

You'll need a PPC distro for a Mac, or even a m68K if its really Old....

Try Yellow-Dog, Debian or Gentoo, I think Fedora do Have a PPC port, but I've not heard good things, check out Fedora on Your Mac for more info.
