I have an order placed for the new Quad 2.5GHz Powermac, it should be ariving in a couple of weeks (probably more like three realy), and I was wondering if anyone knows what the current state of getting Linux working on one of these is? I recall that when the last revision of the Powermac came out it took a few weeks before the kernel would boot on them - and then only a few more days after that before there was a LiveCD image available for them in Bugzilla - I guess I'm hoping for similar performance this time round :)

The second question I have is whether anyone knows how well x86 Gentoo works on Virtual PC 7?

I pretty much think booting from a Gentoo ppc64 Live CD should work just fine...
Follow the Handbook and there shouldn't be any problems at all, really...
If you might experience any differences let us know
