Request: SuSE Linux 7.3

I'm after SuSE Linux 7.3 for PowerPC. Anyone have a copy they can upload?
I've searched torrent sites, eBay, linux stores, etc. and still no find.

Any reason for wanting 7.3? From what I've read, this was a commercial release (US$80) and consisted of 8 install CDs. It might be easier to locate more recent free PPC distros, such as Mandrake or Yellow Dog, etc. and even the newest versions of Yellow Dog will run on all G4 and G5 PPCs. You can also DL versions of YD going back to version 5.0 from their mirrors, which would run on earlier Mac hardware.

[Edit]: I also recall, I used to run "LinuxPPC 2000 Q4" back in the day. The "Q4" distro release was rock solid IMO and was easy to setup & install and is about the same vintage as the SuSE 7.3 distro you're wanting (so will run on the same hardware). The Q4 release is getting to be very difficult to find, but I managed to track down an ISO on an FTP site located in Japan - If interested in trying it out, choose the "lppc-2k-q4.iso" link on the ISO's DL page (look for "lppc-2k-q4.iso 640466 KB 8/03/2001 12:00:00 AM" in page).
