I just tested some x86 distributions (Suse 7.3 and 8.0, Mandrake 7.1) on
an IBook2 14" G3 600 - 384 Mo of Ram under Virtual PC 5.03. It ran but
so slowly (just alike a toy, realy unusable, even to drag an icon on the
kde desktop) that i drop the virtual linux machines directly to the
trash... Perhaps in using a biproc G4...
