FWIW i'm running mklinux pre-R1 on my 7100/66 as a
dial in server.  its not much use if you're trying
to do anything X-ish but makes a fine little server.

its pretty much what the mklinux site is run off of

the only real advantage in this case that the 7200 
has is that it uses a PCI bus instead of nubus and 
can run linuxppc (which tends to have newer kernels
available).  its system bus might be a bit quicker
