Default Reviving an old G4 iMac?

Anyone have experience with PPC distro's of Linux?

Currently I just use it as a picture frame running a slide show of my digital camera shots, but figured I might be able to get a little more functionality out of it with an OS I don't mind having connected to the network. Would also make putting new pictures on it easier and I might be able to run a nicer slide show program.

Thoughts? ideas?

What about Lubuntu?

I've been out of the 'nix circles for some time now, but remember reading that this (and Yellow Dog prior) were pretty good.
