It *could* be that it's not really an RS 6000, but instead a PowerPC, and
in that case it is a chance that it can (or will be able to) run
But if it's an older IBM RT then it's no.
In any case it's not a MIPS CPU, so Linux/MIPS is out of the question..
(currently snowed over with an IBM/SP2 system, which is ~RS 6000)
