Need help with Linux Pro 9.2 installation on Mac OS X

First off I hope I'm in the right area for this question because it is a question about Linux software but I am also a Newbie to Linux, but if I'm not then sorry. Well I just bought a Mac Mini which came with Mac OS X 10.3.7 already installed and at the same time I bought Suse Linux 9.2 Professional. Well I am trying to install Linux onto the Mac now but I can't get CD 1 or 2 to boot at start up even when I hold "C" and any other shotcut. I also can't get Yast to install nor can I get any boot loader to install. And I don't want the dual boot. Can someone please help me and put me on the right track. Thanks.

You need a distro that is designed for Mac hardware. Debian and Yellow Dog Linux are 2 that I can think of. AFAIK SuSE is for x86 (or PC) only.
