    You might want to check out one of the lighter versions of *buntu, such as Xubuntu or Lubuntu, Ubuntu may not run well with later versions.

    I'm not sure how a G4 boots exacly, but check that you're doing it right (user manual?) and that the CD is correctly bootable.

    As mentioned above Ubuntu is likely to be too heavy. Please test the suggested versions (X/Lubuntu) before asking for more.

    It sounds suspiciously like it's not booting the CD at all. In fact, I would almost guarantee it's not booting the CD based on your description.

    We're not a hardware or Mac forum...you might want to try one of those instead if it's refusing to boot from a CD at all.
