I remember many moons ago running MacOS on Linux using Mac on Linux on 
my old iMac G3, can't remember though if it was OSX or OS 9.2 which I 
ran on top of it.  Besides it was REALLY slow.

I am a little tempted to invest in another PPC Mac.  A supplier of mine 
keeps e-mailing me offers on G4 iBooks and G5 iMacs.  They are still a 
little pricey though (well the iMac is) considering what I can build for 
the same money.
