    Yes. Here is a tutorial for doing it:

    The "i386 version" which need a 486 at least, is the original version of Linux. Every distribution has them and which one is best is a matter of personal choice.

    I tend to refer people who ask that question to this site:

    It's against Apple's T&Cs to run anything other than apple OSes on mac hardware.

    but yes, it can technically be done.

    asking which is best is very much down to personal taste. try a few liveCDs out and get a feel for each distro, then decide on what you like.

    Were I to re-choose a linux flavour(currently I'm on ubuntu) I'd probably pick Debian
