I just handed a Knoppix Jr. disk to our principal last week. 
Unfortunately it only runs on Intel processors.  Someone's missing a
major boat here:  there are tons of schools with old Macs that could use
a Linux distro geared for kids, and would live to see a livecd but all
the well-integrated projects I've looked at only work on Intel. We need
something that will work on PPC!  Anyone know of one?
