Is there a download for PPC Macs on their website? If not, the answer to your question is probably no. Instead of asking random people on the Internet, why not ask the people who make RoboLinux?

Almost all those PPC's are and were difficult to get a distro on it. They might have been great for the time but limited info so developers couldn't make anything. Pretty much obsolete now.

Lubuntu still supplies 32 bit ppc isos in their 14.04 version.

PPC has several issues and workarounds, please refer to the documentation on the wiki.

Slideshow on PPC Desktop ISO was removed because of a bug on webkit (996568)

Installer on Desktop PPC (Ubiquity) is enable to resize and split partitions. you can use Gparted before launching the installation to make the modifications to your partitions (1307994)
