Hardy on my PPC Mac Powerbook G3(G4 brain transplant) is a
hodgepodge--some things are causing me odd problems--like language
support for OO.o, and weird KDE 4 messes. On my PII Dell Latitude,
it's the only distro I've gotten to work with my T-Sunus PCcards, so
I'm using it there, but it's brutally slow (That's Xubuntu, btw that's
slow). Overall, however, I'm quite satisfied with Hardy.

But like you, I would _love_ to have a backup system for it--at least,
now that I've upgraded to Hardy (creating a minor mess) ;-).

I've read about a couple things on Lifehacker.com, so I did a Google
Reader search. Here's what I turned up:
this first one is probably the most promising.

a bit more maybe, complicated?

Intriquing, as it's an Xubuntu-based live CD

I just haven't had the time to try any of thse, however. Also, I
believe that all of these pre-date Hardy, so they may not have been
updated to work with it.
