No clue on this, while its slow, I dont really have any problem dealing
with slow graphics. LinuxPPC has a "faster" sever called Xpmac, I'm
not sure its really all that faster, but you may want to take a look
at it. You can get the rpm from linuxppc.org i think, then do a
apt-get install alien; and run alien rpmname; then dpkg -i debname.
Basically alien transforms rpms into debian packages. Other then that,
im not aware of any accelerated drivers.

Right, its a mac keyboard.. its delete. You will need to remap it to BS
if you want it to be BS. See Xmodmap.
