Is that an Intel based Mac or a PowerPC one? Yes I know nothing about Macs and doing a google search didn't really find anything, did you mean G3?

These might be good places to start:

Never known a Ubuntu version, but Fedora (http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-ppc) has a ready-to-install PowerPC G3 port.
