unplugging the hard drive and just installing Suse on the second hard
drive alone just to get a feel for it. Any little tips and tricks
you can give would be appreciated.
I have the Powr Mac G5,

That sounds like a splendid idea! Since you have a second drive to play
with, it makes perfect sense to remove your Mac drive and use the
second for SuSE. Then later, you can decide either to do a dual boot
or just blow away the MacOS altogether!
I think you'll find Linux to be quite speedy on the G5.
