Looking up the specs, I don't see any obvious reason it shouldn't work
even with a current release.  It is a CHRP powerpc machine with open
firmware.  Perfectly normal it seems.

I would give it a try if you have one.

Obviously at 332MHz 604e it won't be fast.  Also depends whether it has
128MB ram, or has been expanded to a more resonable amount.  Obviously
having more than 1 cpu would be nice.
