I'm having this same issue. Posted issue yesterday. No solutions. In reading thru the forums I see no one with same issue has had this solved save for the bad CD burn. I'm stuck at this point.

do a netinstall with the mini.iso:
http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/lucid/main/installer-powerpc/current/images/powerpc/
It only starts from the CD (or USB, up to you), and then installs all software from the net.

Did you install from a CD, the network, or other (specify)?

If you installed from a CD, did you use the Desktop CD or the Alternative CD?
