As far as I know, only on a certain PowerMac 5500/225 ;-)

It should work on any PPC which can boot the OSF Mach kernel, i.e. on which 
MkLinux runs (and maybe a couple more).  You can find the kernel on (a mirror 
of) ftp.mklinux.org, see www.mklinux.org/mirrors.html.

It doesn't seem to be `officially' supported, but according to 
http://lppcfom.sourceforge.net/fom-serve/cache/350.html it should work, 
perhaps with a few tricks.

The one from MkLinux.  It's also available on a mirror of ftp.mklinux.org, but 
I think I'm going to collect the files necessary to boot the hurd on my Hurd 
page (http://huizen.dds.nl/~pjbruin/hurd/), as well as a short description on 
how to set up a Hurd system.
