bplan Efika PPC

I got this pair of efika boards on a flea market some years ago, they came with the angle adapter to connect AGP cards on the PCI port?! (cool) they both boot fine, i have only tested the morphos trial image and it boots fine, this requires a laptop ide hard disk for storage, it works fine with ide to sata or cf adapters.

I want to get linux running on one just because, i tried void last year but never got it to boot, so ill probably go back to old debian.
