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.
