first distro i used was caldera.. [bad memories]
Second suse that lasted a bit longer, till i discoverd the way :)

I  did a suse install for a friend recently and it still sucks.[IMHO] 
Far too pretty and i couldnt find icewm. 

On the other hand, i have been using debian for a few years on i386 and
it was a bit of a stuggle to get it onto my IPC [sun4c] but this was due
to mu inability to confiure a boot server rather than anything wrong
with the actual sparc [well apart from a file locking issue with the nfs

Anyway i say go for debian! you can do it!

post probs, but rtm and google first =o)
