    Fedora 12 PPC install?
    Hello all,
    I tried to install the Linux onto my powermac G5 2004 2nd hard drive, the question is, how much partition do I need (650GB HD)? And how hard to have it installed?

    Thank you.
    ibook G3 750.
    Powermac G5 dual.

    You should need too much space for linux, 50–100 gb should be fine

    Personally, on my old G4 I found Ubuntu to be easier to install- but its entirely up to you
