Re: Debian or ubuntu
Ubuntu still has a PPC build maintained by the community. But I don't
think they have an XFCE/LXDE specific installer like Debian does. as
for Gnash, I had no problems with the Debian package & the Iceweasel
plugin package but I've only used it on a G5. I've also not tried the
Ubuntu PPC build in a couple of years or more.
Re sound, Ive been looking through the wiki for info on enabling sound
on the Mac G5. Has anyone found the solution & if so, did it work?

Ubuntu has still a not official PowerPC version
mean, would installing the system and getting things like wireless
and sound to work be harder in Debian than Ubuntu?
Debian is not really more difficult that Ubuntu IMO.
Not at all, you need to configure in Ubuntu few things as in Debian,
but Debian is much more stable and light
You may want to install a different DE instead of Gnome - for my iBook
I have Lenny with lxde
