Yes, you can install most distros of Linux or BSD using this app.

Yes, I have even installed Suse Linux 6 at that time, but I didn't find good way
to transfer files between OS9 and that Linux with Virtual PC.
But, my point is that there was even preinstalled pack for sale, so I wonder
if that had that better interaction between systems.

Debian Linux version 10.4.0 i386 tested to install in Connectix Virtual PC. Cannot install, but you can not install it to real Pentium PC  either :D
Yes you read right...Debian Linux has dropped support for Intel 386-686 CPUs some years ago.
btw. you can boot PPC Mac with older Debian Linux PPC, but ofcourse we don't want to.

Somethings I noticed when testing:
- Virtual PC 2.1.3 is absolutely lowest version that works in Mac OS 9.
- Virtual PC 6.0 in Mac OS 9.2.2 doesn't support booting from DVD, although OS X version does.
- I want know what was in:  ftp://linuxadditions:password@care.connectix.com/users/linuxadditions

What distros?

Now tested:
Debian 8.11.1
Last version that should support Pentium II MMX (that is what Connectix Virtual PC emulate)
Not install, hang when first time try to write to HD in installation.
I am too lazy to bug report, this version has LTS support to july 2020.

Debian 6.0.10
I think this has same problem that 8.11.1

Debian 5.0.10
Kernel panic very beginning installation. Some hardware 586 PC has that too.
