Hmm. That's a pretty old system. Based on Power5+ processors.
We'll poke around a bit. Which Linux are you playing with? you may need to get creative with the kernel and the pieces..

I have been directed to use one of the following distros: http://distrowatch.com/search.php?architecture=powerpc#distrosearch
The main problem I see is to get the machine to boot from the install CD/DVD, I have installed Linux before from CDs/DVDs.
Any reccomandation is welcome.
