I really don't know, but according to the article I read some weeks ago
it should. See :

> Can I download some floppy images to see if I can boot the system?

Take a look at :
How can we fit the zImage to a floppy? or is there other ways to do it?.
(only got a CD-ROM and a floppy)

>From the README.orig file:
Yellow Dog Linux for IBM RS/6000
zImage -- The installer kernel image.
zImage.chrp -- The post-installation kernel. -- Kernel 2.2.10

I found an install image " installer-prepr5.19990202" for the linuxPPC
distribution, it started the install program but I didn't have the
distribution to
complete it.
