    The best install I've ever put on that same machine was linux mint ppc, a quick google will find you the website. There's install guides. It's debian based, you'll do a net install (if it's still the same as I installed last year) but it looks clean, is fast, and is reliable.

    the problem i have with mintppc is that its only a mini iso requiring a net install... some of us are stuck installing off the network

    so i would choose lubuntu 12.04 alternate ppc install iso.

    will require some xorg.conf configs and you can find more info on this in the powerpc faq. There is a sticky thread with links to the installation iso if you head to the main forum page then click apple users.
