Thanks all. Turns out I did have a spare x86 based machine in a corner
that I had forgotten about. I'm working on recovering and moving me
setup to the slightly less than ancient machine ;-). I'm normally not
squeamish about recompiling the kernel and other packages. But this
time the less work I have to do the faster I can have my replacement
back online. Since it's my primary mail processing system
(postfix+procmail+dbmail/imap) I'd like to have it working sooner
rather than later.

I'll leave the G4 system for later when I have more time to try LInux
on it without any stress of getting mine and my wife's e-mail back
