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.
