I have a good bit of experience with Linux desktop distributions on the x86 architecture.
Now it is my task to decide on a desktop distro for someone's iMac, 500 MHz PowerPC G3 with 640 MB of RAM.
My initial investigation led me here. I have a few questions:
(1) Given the more aged processor, which version of a Fedora core desktop distribution would you recommend ?
(2) I would need an installer which is more than clickable -- rather, I would need (my preference) some sort of text installer where I have a great deal of control over partitioning. Is this available?
(3) I would need to be able to install a bootloader which has a lot of online docs or support, so that I can modify that bootloader. How does bootloader for Fedora work in this regard? Easy?
(4) I would need some sort of partition manager "live CD" so that I could shrink the existing OS X partition on the iMac in question, before beginning an install of any Linux distro. What is recommended?
Thanks very much for reading, I hope you can make some recommendations for me to move me forward with Fedora.
