imac power pc g3


I own an imac power pc g3, I am trying to find an os that is suitable for this computer. Currently using yellow dog 6.2, could you reccomend an os that is suitable for my mac? I am fed up with osx it is worthless in my book. Also is thier a way to either mount an iso to my cd drive and install it that way? The drive is broken and will not accept a disk all the way into it gets halfway then gets stuck, however i am not concerned with this at the moment. Could I extract the iso file and install that way? I am lookin for some help with this I have been to numerous fourms trying to figure this out, keep getting told to boot from usb, however mac power pc will NOT boot from usb. Any advice would be helpfull with this issue.
