I think that quik is this what I am looking for. Currently my MAC has got OS 
8.x installed but what I aim is to get rid of it.

One more question:
so far I have found quik-2.1-4.ydl4.ppc.rpm is the latest release and it 
belongs to Yelow Dog Linux distro. However I wonder how to install RPM package 
where I have no possibility to run any UX system on my "Old World Macintosh".? 
Correct me if I am wrong, but as I understood "Old World Macintosh" are able to 
boot only OS up to 8.x .

Dzięki,
Maciek
