Linux on a Mac G4

So – I have a Mac G4 power pc (Quicksilver) that I am trying to run Linux on. I haven’t had much luck, so far. Ubuntu installs nicely and everything EXCEPT the wireless Airport card works great – looks nice, does everything but the Flash games the kids want. Debian PPC installs great  – even sees the wireless card during install and uses it to update, but the Nvidia graphics card has no driver, so no graphical interface.

A mac in Ubuntu with an ethernet connection would work great – but I need the wireless. Still have to try Yellowdog Linux, but am searching for Mac OS X Tiger discs to install the operating system designed for these Macs.
