I have been looking for and failed to find a Live CD of Gentoo for my G4 laptop. I can find installable CDs but no GUI demo CDs. I want to first just experience the LINUX enviroment before I am willing to wipe my hard drive and reinstall Mac OS and Linux. Is there such a CD for PPC? I found in one forum about a CD in the 'experimental' section but the folders G3, G4, G5 are empty? I have been trying now for a week to find such a CD, does it exist and where? Thanks!

I think I found one before but I could not get it to work...

open an ftp and do an anonymous ftp to ftp.ussg.iu.edu

go to: /linux/gentoo/experimental/ppc

there's the cube-gamecd-ppc that was released recently but I dont know much about it.. haven't tried it yet on my ibook.

If you want to just play with linux (if this is your first time) Ubuntu has a full demo version for PPC www.ubuntu.org that's pretty nice.

that one I HAVE ran..

Thank you for your reply but could you tell me the iso name that contains this demo version PPC. I was under the impression it was only for Intel x86? No PPC LIVE CD demo version exist?
Again thanks in advance--
