When you say it's an older Mac, I take it you mean one with a PPC Power PC chipset.

You can run various flavors of Linux on an older Mac's like YDL (yellowdoglinux), ArchLinuxPPC, Slackintosh, Debian, Gentoo, Crux etc.

My suggestion would be to download the Ubuntu iso, burn it onto a DVD / CD and then install it onto your Mac, then all your software will be a much more up to date version but you'll have to sacrifice Jaguar (which is not that great a loss when you think how out of date it is!) this will replace the entire operating system.

Nothing replaces that feeling you get though, when you follow the install instructions and spend a few hours bashing at it and suddenly it's all working the way you expect it too and you get that feeling, you can hold your head high and say, I made that!

Ubuntu 10:10 is also available as a PowerPC image!

Once it's up and running, to update your entire software library that is already installed by default open the Terminal click --> Applications goto --> Accessories click Terminal and type: sudo apt-get update then supply the password you setup when you installed and it will update then follow that with sudo apt-get upgrade
