[svlug] LinuxPPC and iMac

A friend of mine owns an iMac and is interested in running Linux on it.
After checking the LinuxPPC site I see that the hardware is supported
and everything seems hunky dory.

Not being familiar with iMacs or Macintosh in general, I am wondering if
an iMac can take a second hard drive so that he won't have to format his
existing drive and lose his data.  Do iMacs allow for a second drive to
be added?  Or is there another alternative?  Partition Magic for the PPC
perhaps?

Any suggestions welcome.
