I have an apple performa 6400/180, what do you think can i do with it and linux? It's running macOS now, but it's useless for me. I would run linux if it could be able to do it.
i'll appreciate if you have some suggestions or urls to point me out
thanks you guys

Judging from these specs (http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/mac_performa/stats/mac_performa_6400_180.html) it won't run very fast, but should run at least in text mode.

The howto you want is here (http://www.bytebot.net/geekdocs/ibook/fedorappc.html), stolen from this thread (http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=18175).

As you may have figured out, the ppc architecture for Fedora is still being worked on. Good luck.

Just a little piece of advice, jhonnyb0y - just because you can post pretty colors doesn't mean you should - old pharts like me have problems reading light-pink text on white backgrounds... ;)
