So I know there are a few issues, such as owning a Mac rom. But I was thinking it would be well suited to run an emulator such as Basilisk II or Sheep Shaver to run this classic mac. It would be fun to have it so that the PI booted the mac directly without needing to load into another OS first. This also could open the door to all those classic mac games lying around. Sadly I do not even know where I would start to program something like this, so that is why I am mentioning it here. I know that Debian supports both Basilisk and Sheepshaver, and both are on the GIT repository.

Though QEMU emulates the following PowerPC (603/604 processors) PowerMac peripherals and Raspbian repository has Qemu version 1.1.2:

UniNorth PCI Bridge
PCI-VGA-compatible Graphics card which maps the VESA Bochs Extensions
Two PMAC-IDE-Interfaces with hard disk and CD-ROM support.
NE2000 PCI adapter
Non-volatile RAM
