Hi Conrad,
Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure I understand the question. I 
am running Ubuntu linux with the 2.6.12-10-powerpc kernel. Redhat make a 
PPC distro, as do SuSE, Debian and many others. Changing to RedHat 
wouldn't solve the problem however, which is that you offer 2 linux 
binaries. One for 32 bit x86 architecture and one for 64 bit 
architecture. For me to be able to run Chimera on my machine I would need 
a binary compiled for Mac PPC architecture (my processor is a G3). This 
would still be true if I were running RedHat on my Mac.
