Well, I haven't had much experience with too many Macs, but I think that my
Performa 450 (LCIII with a 33MHz Processor) seems to do a fine job except for
the fact that the Floppy Drive isn't supported, which is a major setback.
Everything else runs fine. It even does some XFree86, although I haven't had
a chance to try the color version. If you have an LCIII or anything, it
would definitely work, except I think that the floppy drive would still not
work. My Mac went from having a pretty laggy Mac OS 7.1p2 to NetBSD 1.6.1
and soon to be a NetBSD 2.0 when I get a chance to try it out. Hope this
