There's Yellow Dog Linux (www.yellowdoglinux.com) which got some bad
censures in the German IT-mag 'iX' because it can't be downloaded
completely and has some not so good documentation. Then there's LinuxPPC
(www.linuxppc.org) which can be d'l'ed completely and has got (according
to the article) an excellent handbook.

   The use of COBOL cripples the mind; its teaching should, therefore, be
   regarded as a criminal offence.                  -- Edsger W. Dijkstra
