Regarding suse: check in www.suse.com if there is any problem with the mac model you want to use.

Regarding NT: NT doesn't run on mac's. You would need a PC emulator for the mac, but the performance would be atrocious.

Windows NT has never (and will never) run natively on any Macintosh.

You can only run SUSE on PowerPC so that's your first (and only real) consideration. If you want to run MacOS as well as Linux, then you can use the MOL (Mac on Linux virtual Mac) to run MacOS in a window or full screen (runs MacOS 8.6 or later without a ROM image), this means you can get away with just installing SUSe and running MOL (which if you have a reasonable machine should be plenty fast enough because it runs natively)

If you realy want to have NT (and I can't think of a single reason why you would want to if you have a Mac AND Linux) You would have to go for something like a PCI plugin x86 card, it's not a great solution and I think you would be better offgetting a cheap PC just for NT (if you realy insist on it)

1. NT doesn't run on Mac's.
2. check out http://www.linuxppc.org for info
(you can also download a RH-based linuxppc-iso)
3. With some mac's (iMac in my experience)
BootX is the only bootmanager that I got
working. You have to get that separately.
