I'm installing gentoo on a spare 12" apple that I have. Should I use the stage3-ppc tarball
or the stage3-g4 tarball ? Any body know the difference ?

if your cpu is G4 you'd better install stage3-G4 cause the difference is that the G4 stage has been compiled with G4 optimization

stage3-ppc means general powerpc machine ... so everything from ppc603/4 to G5

No! Read before posting! This is PowerPC hardware, so x86 stages won't work!
