Mac SE/30 boot disk+Linux distribution??

Hi there,
While cleaning out my closet I found my good ol' Mac SE/30, I have a LAN set up right now and could use this thing, when I boot it up I get that nice *sad mac* image, the code tells me there is system probs, so I want to get my hands on a BOOT DISK (shrinkwrap image) so I can at least boot off a floppy and make an attempt to fix it.
also, I am looking for a Linux distribution that will run on that baby, and a URL or when I can download it..
best regards,

OK, for starters, you can download disk images from Apple's ftp site. Pick your system version (6.x, 7.x).

ftp://ftp.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-North_American/Macintosh/System/Older_System/

As for making Linux run on it, check out this site:

Good luck, keep us posted.
