To expand on another answer, you can install NetBSD for PowerPC over 
the net, but I think you need a floppy or some kind of startup image to 
boot from. And you have to be willing to poke around in the Open 
Firmware environment. And of course, there's Darwin 7.0.1, the core of 
OS X 10.3.

The best option is to fix or replace the drive, I think.
