 We have Yellowdog linux running on a couple of G4s here at McGill. At the
moment, they are our pre-production web server (to test out pages before
the go live) and a file server/workstation. They are running very well,
and it looks like we will be retiring our older Solaris machine for a
bunch of G4s and BlackLab Linux as the university's main web server (we
are still working out the configuration).

 So far, the performance is excellent, and the hardware/software is very
stable. I must admit, that I have more experience with Linux on Intel
machines, and I found the install procedure and Open Firmware a bit odd,
but once you get through it, it goes quite well.
