Okay, I'm gonna do something I've never done before because I HATE it ;). I'm gonna give some unwanted (? ) advice. Why is 6.10 the most recent version you can install? I've checked wikipedia and I don't think you'll be pleased with the speeds your getting running Gnome. Why don't you install the most recent XUbuntu (http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/ports/releases/jaunty/release/xubuntu-9.04-alternate-powerpc.iso) and install that? XFCE seems like the way to go in your situation.

And, I'm sorry, but Gnash is the only way to play Flash-content on PPC (If I'm not mistaking) and your specs are way to low for that.
