[CentOS] [OT] linux on a PPC (mac mini)

Hello there,

complete off-topic, sorry about this, but my former idea was to install
a CentOS on an old mac mini (PPC!). Disappointed to see that PowerPC is
not a supported architecture and that non ARM or Intel architecture are
not managed by recent distros.. :-(.

Searching the web, I see very few possibilities to install a recent (I
need gnome2) GNU/Linux distro on such hardware. I gave Linux MintPPC 11
(http://www.mintppc.org/content/list-macs) a try, but the netinstall
iso simply fails in installing a boot loader that conserves the
original OS/X partition even after many tries and workarounds.

Any hint or experience would be welcome?
