I have downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 alternate PPC to install on my old emac.

It starts fine the installation process, and I want to have only Ubuntu on this machine so I erased all the mac partitions and create 3 new partitions

/ = root
swap
and /home

Everything goes well until I get the message that there is not a partition called Apple_bootstrap and I get stuck there.

Does anyone have a solution or can help me with ideas?

I don't know how well Lucid Lynx installs on PPC. Maybe you need to make a Bootloader partition manually at the beginning.
