The PB145 contains a 68k proscessor, and thus can't run any form of PPC
Linux. However, it should do just fine with Linux/Mac68k, with the
exception of the keyboard and mouse, which are as of yet unsupported. More
information can be found at <http://www.mac.linux-m68k.org/>.
As for other 68k powerbooks, currently the 190, 520 and 540 are the best
supported models, but that's rather relative. From the sound of your
message, a PPC powerbook would probably be out of your price range.
