I am new to Power PC's. I want to install linux on IBM RISC/6000 604e box. I have no clue where to start. I know i have to create a boot disk first before the installation. I need some help to do that and also the actual installation of linux.

Thanks in advance.

This is probably not the distro to start PPC with, as it is still being worked on. See this (http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=18175) for a howto link.

You may want to try Yellow Dog (http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=20081) which seems to be Red Hat based.
