MacBSD most likely won't run on that machine. No information about
Linux is supposedly somewhat faster and more SysV-ish and written
pretty much from scratch, while NetBSD is stabler, and is based
on the 4.3BSD net-2 distribution and now 4.4BSD lite. I prefer NetBSD
over linux on PeeCees, your mileage may vary.

MacLinux is big-time vaporware, supposedly released Jan-Feb. MacBSD
has been out for a long time.
