Yellow Dog Linux is/was great!
We ran YDL on a 12" iBook with an 800Mhz G3 or G4.
It was a piece of art.  The YDL implementation was as superior in the
graphical interface with red hat (at the time) as MacOS is superior to
Windows.  Terrific.
Is YDL still current on the PPC.  If it is, try YDL.
Add a solid state drive (SSD) and you have the advantages of the Asus Eee PC
with the advantages of a full laptop. (regular keyboard & screen)
