Please help, can I install novacom driver on PowerPC G3? I have both Debian and Mac OS X 10.4.11 (with Java 6 installed), but can't find PPC driver, only intel

Compile your own. I'm not sure if the repo contains USB drivers, but it'll have everything else.

X2. I got an old Quick Silver G4 that I'd like to make useful again. I'm too old to keep using the tiny laptop screen for terminal fun.
