Hrm... just realized that Darwine won't run Win32 x86 executables on PowerPC macs yet. They're looking to integrate an x86 emulator, but nothing yet.

Sorry.

SO...in "other words", I could install Ubantu Linux on my Windows PC and I wouldn't have to create another partition on my HD??

It wouldn't be an "install"... you're just running Linux from a CD. Any changes you make would go away when you reboot or shut down. It's more meant for people to try before installing. http://www.ubuntu.com

If you want a Linux that you can use and change without touching the hard drive, try Damn Small Linux http://www.damnsmalllinux.org or Puppy Linux http://www.puppylinux.org . DSL can be run from a USB flash drive, Puppy can run from a multi-session CD or DVD when you boot it in your CD writer.
