What would be a good Linux distro for my aging imac g3 it is the first generation g3 with 100 mb of ram and a 330mhz powerpc processor. It had mac os 10.2.9 on it but it was a little slow slow so I replaced it with with the powerpc version of ubuntu 4.10 but it is bugy and crashes. is their any other linux distros for the powerpc platform that will be happy with less than 100 mb of ram.

More about : imac

You could always try Gentoo if you're feeling adventurous. It'll take an age to compile on that machine, but you can tailor the system to your needs. Definitely no Gnome or KDE. Try WindowMaker of XFCE4.

LXDE would work as well :)
