"As of July 31, 2000, the PowerMac 5200/5300/6200/6300
family of computers, and their Performa equivalents, are officially
supported in MkLinux. Please NOTE that only the 6214 has been
tested, so there may be some small snags in some of the others.
Barring any surprises, though, it should "just work."
- Sound is not supported yet. That's the next priority....
- SCSI is working, but rather slow. It's partially hardware at
fault, and partially a lack of pseudo-DMA code. Oh well. It "mostly
works." As always, your mileage may vary.
- Serial is untested. It should work, but again, YMMV."
