Yes, and it couldn't be simpler.  On the Mac side download:

ftp://mirror.linuxppc.org//linuxppc/pmac/BootX_1.0.1.sit

install the fantastic BootX as per directions

ftp://mirror.linuxppc.org//linuxppc/pmac/kernel-binary/v2.2.1/vmlinux

Place vmlinux in your system folder.  (Rename the MkLinux version of
vmlinux if necessary.)

You should be able to boot with this slight modification.  You'll want
to dl an rpm package called:

"pmac-utils" to add support for mouse and monitor, etc.

ftp://mirror.linuxppc.org//linuxppc/ftp.linuxppc.org/linuxppc-R4/RedHat/
RPMS/pmac-utils-1.1.1-1.ppc.rpm

Cheers,  David

1. Going, going, going, GONE! Bye Windows!

Who says Linux isn't ready for the desktop? I now have every equivalent
app on Winderz (approx $1000+ value) running on RH 6.1 ($41 delivered):
StarOffice, Jpilot, Netscape, Gimp, Apache and on and on and on. Goodbye
Windows FOREVER!
