There are builds of Fedora Core for PPC but I don't know how stable they
are. Currently PPC is not an officially supported platform of FC. The
package tree for PPC is here:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/ppc/

I can't seem to find any ISOs you can dowload though.

Yellow Dog Linux (you'll need to google that) is a port of Fedora Core
to PPC. It seems to be well-regarded. I have recently heard very good
reports of Ubuntu (Debian based distribution) on PPC.

Here is a review of Ubuntu on Mac:

You can download Ubuntu from here:
