[lug] Does this sound reasonable?

I've a quick project - trying to duplicate an old system.
It's an rs6000 running AIX 4.3.3. We have the hardware, but there's some
old software (Universe database) that's being a bit more problematic.
My thought is this:
1) duplicate the filesystem layout from the old system onto the new system
2) create a tar file for each filesystem.
3) boot up a Linux PPC live cd, apply the tar files to the proper file
The question is this: will a modern Linux PPC live CD run on an RS6000
(233Mhz, 1G memory)?
If so, does anyone have a recommendation for a Linux PPC live CD
distribution? I don't know much about stuff on the PPC side of Linux.
Thanks for any info, hints, thoughts, or pointers.
