Right now, our DNS server and mail relay is a PowerMac 7200/120 running
LinuxPPC that I installed from an ISO I downloaded from linuxiso.org
LinuxPPC is very redhat-like.  I view that as a detriment (since I like
SuSE a little better), but that means that you shouldn't be compeltely
lost coming from the SuSE world.

You can download an installer that runs from Macos there, or the full
bootable ISO.  I've never used SuSE's PPC version, but that's not to
say that it's bad. :)
