I have never used Linux in my entire life; so please excuse my stupid question. I thought it might be fun to boot my Powerbook G3 Lombard 333 Mhz (Bronze Keyboard and New World Rom) from a Linux CD. However, I do not know whether such CDs exist or have ever existed.
Information on the web on this topic is quite unsatisfactory (at least for a non Linux expert like me). The only thing I found so far is Powerpup (Puppy Linux for old PPC Macs): http://powerpup.yi.org/ This is a very interesting project but only in beta stage so far. The Powerpup boot CD I burned started booting but then stopped in the middle of the booting process (for what reasons I did not understand because I do not know anything about Linux).
On the web Mandrake, Gentoo and Ubunto are mentioned as bootable on Powerbooks G3. But I was not able to check on these because those old systems do not seem to be downloadable anymore. So my question is:
Does anyone know whether there ever existed working boot Linux CDs for Powerbooks G3, and are they still available somewhere?
