    LinuxPPC Network Install

    Can this be done? Or is there a distro that is ppc compatible and will fit on a few floppies? I have an ooooooold powerbook w/ no cdrom, just a floppy, and I really want linux on it.

    you also have to check on which distro supports your old powerbook. If it is as old as it sounds, you will need to use mklinux (www.mklinux.org)

    I think that mklinux can do a network install, but, I have never tried.

    you might also have to use a 68k linux, I think that mklinux works on the 68k machine, but, am not totally sure
