Read, and since this thing comes
with surprisingly much documentation, also (well, I wanted to give
you the file name, it's something like
pub/linuxppc/linuxppc-dev-rel/README, but I can't get on this server
right now; the other mirrors are probably filling their
linuxppc-dev-rel trees.) 

As far as I can tell, this is the basis for LinuxPPC R5 (no netscape
yet) and probably for yellowdog champion-server 1.1 and other
distributions. Its rpms are based on RedHat 6.0 and basically the same
that you find in the rawhide directories at and, and also in the pre-R5 directories.

It comes with plenty of installer stuff for different machines, mklinux
and linuxppc, scripts for generating 2 CDs, the RedHat handbooks for
installing and getting started, plus a ppc addendum for these handbooks
(all handbooks in html format and also as rpms). This addendum is in
some parts not quite finished. It is online on

I also thought that there was a linuxppc-announce list for such things
