I would like to install Gentoo on my 2,5 GHz. However, I am not sure if that is possible since the water cooling in the machine is taking care of by the oiperating system. Mac OS X 10.3.5 knows how to do this but does Linux know???
I have tried to search this forum but with no luck.

Do you want to install Gentoo/PPC or Gentoo/PPC64?

If you want to install Gentoo/PPC64 you should use latest LiveCD available here: http://dev.gentoo.org/~tgall/2005.0/.

But if it is a PowerMac9,1 (or generaly PowerMac > 7,3 it is NOT possible to install Linux on it ATM -- kernel lacking support)
