openSUSE and iMac G3

If you have an iMac G3 and want to install Linux (instead of throwing it out of your window and kills 2 people :P), you may want to try openSUSE. From my experience, openSuse is the best distro for it. What about other distro? Well, i've tried Ubuntu. It is not suitable for this type of iMac. YDL? The installation went smoothly but i had to tweak the X before it worked. One caveat though. If your iMac doesn't have DVD drive, you have to install via internet. First you have to download the install iso and burn it to CD. Boot from the CD and there's menu for you to choose. Choose installation and update. For more info on this, click here.

You will be asked for repository IP address. You can put name address instead of IP. Then, you will asked for directory for packages. Enter the directory. You can find them here. Please choose a repository near you.

Any question regarding installation, just ask here. Maybe I can help. :)
