according to the macppc model support page we maintain (linked
from the macppc port page) at


the 6100 unfortunately falls into the "we don't support it
because it does not use OpenFirmware" category.  That's at least
unlikely to change in the short term (and I'm not aware of anyone
working to fix it).

As for other OS variants and whether they support it, I'll have
to say "pass".
