Best of luck! Let us know how it goes. Apple has been pretty decent in terms of using supported hardware on Linux. Haven't had much of an issue with them (at least on the Intel line), not sure about PPC though just depending on the age of the iMac.

So far it's been a royal pain the in the neck to get the boot sequence to use USB  flash drive.I am going to give it a few more whirls later today.

Mmmm hmmmm... Funny we were talking the other day on Mumble about Apple's SHADY dealings... I wonder if they are borking their hardware to make Linux installations difficult? LETS HOPE NOT!

I gotta say that after 10x tries with on the wacky  boot sequence ,was able to install it. It runs pretty reasonable on a 7200 SATA drive and I do enjoy the dark theme that come on by default in the apperance. Will be providing a few screenshots in a day or two. So I plan on using this OS as my daily driver for log while.

:)
