Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu Linux has millions of fans. What's not to like? A free operating system with ten thousand free applications, websites covering everything you might ever want to know, tutorials, active forums, and more. Yet for all these benefits, situations pop up when you want a faster, lighter operating system. Perhaps you have an older computer, or maybe a netbook or a mobile device. Wouldn't it be great to have a lightweight Ubuntu? That day has finally arrived. Lubuntu offers a way to stay in the Ubuntu family -- with a product that performs better and uses fewer resources.

The official ppc builds are gone, but there is a port over here: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/10.04/release/
You can also find the newest release here:
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/10.10/release/

A minimal or netinstall is possible. You can get the lubuntu desktop then by typing apt-get install lubuntu-desktop. This should work pretty fine.
