MacFilter: A Performa 5300 is TAUNTING me!

MacFilter: I have a Perfroma 5300 I just got from a friend. It needs a NIC. I have cracked open the back and have no idea what kind of slot this is. When I am calling around to my local Mac repair shops what should I be asking for? Also, can I buy it on the web. My end goal is to have some sort of *nix FTP server running on it.

Linux on an OLD Mac

This may be more of a Slashdot question, but as those super geeks would rip me to ribbons; I am asking yall instead. I have recently become enamored with the idea of running MK Linux or PPC Linux on an old beige Macintosh. What is the best distro to use? What is the ideal beige Macintosh model (Performa 5200CD?) Have any of you actually done this? Is ALL the hardware supported? Any horror stories? Thanks!
