To the best of my knowledge, probably not now and likely not soon. As I
recall, those machines are old Power (or maybe Power2) architecture (Bill
Donzelli knows which models are which better than I do) and the closest
Linux porting project is for the PowerPC, which is less closely related
than the similar names might imply.
