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.

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
