You failded to mention which model Performa you actually have. Here is a list of links that will tell you if your machine is supported. You do not have a 68k machine, but the m68k port may work due to the emulator (it will be really slow though). Also, if your machine is listed as not being supported for the PPC versions, it may work anyway. Try it if you feel like a bit of relaxing experimentation or take their word for it...your choice.

MKLinux:

LinuxPPC:

m68k:
