Programs must be compiled for the Power PC processor to run on Linux PPC. If
the files at www.rootshell.com are executables for normal Linux (such as
RedHat/Intel), then they will not work under Linux PPC. To get them to work,
you could download the source code and try to compile them, but this may not
work and may require extra programming and debugging. Unless you are a
programmer, you should wait until someone else ports the software to the
Power PC platform.
Netscape compiled Linux for the Power PC processors, but did not completely
debug it (last time I heard Java didn't work). (Now, Netscape code is
available from www.mozilla.org.)
