Actually, Derrick, I expect he is referring to getting QuickTime running on a PowerPC version of Linux.

Unfortunately, Wine cannot run this way upon anything other than x86 compatible processors. Therefore, either a true emulator would have to be used, or a port of the Mac APIs (similar to Wine's port of the Windows APIs) would need to be created (or an actual port of QuickTime, which, incidentally, would, essentially, amount to the same thing).
