begin Glenn Wearen quotation:
> Has anybody on this list installed Linux on an RS6000?
Well, some folks have. The RS/6000 series uses IBM Power chips, making
them essentially PowerPC machines. So, some or all of the LinuxPPC
distributions should do the trick. See here for model-specific
Distributions that include the LinuxPPC kernel are as follows:
LinuxPPC, Yellow Dog Linux, Debian 2.2 "potato" or 3.0 "woody", Rock
Linux, Linux from Scratch, MkLinux "R1" prerelease, SuSE, and
Linux-Mandrake 8.0 beta.
I'm not all that well-informed about Linux on PowerPC, but have a bunch
of links from my Linux-on-Macs FAQ items, which may be helpful:
