Hey that is great!!
Can you add the steps to the PowerPC wiki for others who have the same
I think that would help a lot of others.  I think more people will be
using Lubuntu on PPC in the coming years, as they are basically a giant
brick with OS9 or the older versions of OSX
Since the older browsers can't do modern things, and older iTunes can
connect to modern iPhones.  There really isn't much they can do besides
watch DVDs... or maybe play solitaire or something.
Lubuntu totally revitalized my iBook!  Now my kids can play Ri-Li (on of
their favorites) and gCompris!  And do everything themselves!  It is a
great school computer for them.  I can even compile things on it and do
most of the normal stuff I do, though some of it is quite slow...
