Bad idea.  POWER3 processors are built into a number of IBM RS/6000
boxen.  An iBook will run -powerpc or -powerpc-smp.  The latter
doesn't have any particular benefits, of course.

Currently, the linuxppc-2.5-benh tree should not be used, since it is
heavily out of date - it's been stuck at 2.6.5-rc3 for weeks.  If you
must build your own kernel, get the source from kernel.org.
