Is there any software that will let me run a virtual PPC linux system on my PPC Mac?

I'd like to run the latest Ubuntu (PPC) as a virtual machine for testing.

I've never gotten a virtual linux machine to work in PPC. Your only options are to either upgrade to a Macintel or run Ubuntu's live CD.

Thanks for the suggestion, this seems to be the only app that does what I want and it hasn't been updated since July 2005. Nevermind, I'll just have to wait until I can afford a Mactel...
