I am in the same boat... 10.04 ppc "iLamp" mac .. no work ... i get a yellow screen and nothing else.
I've a 700mHz G4 iMac with a dead hard drive so I'm tinkering for a Live-CD replacement for Panther. Booting Ubuntu 10.04 or 9.10 leaves me stalled with a yellow screen. Ubuntu 8.04 seems to work well outside of Airport networking issues in refusing passwords. Wish there were a way to "install" other fonts for OpenOffice on it, but otherwise it's nice. I am going to take a whack at using a "alternate install" to see whether I can pre-burn prune the 10.04/10 iso of unneccessary files to bring down its infamous crippling over 700mb CD burn size. Would really like to know whether this is the max Ubuntu version this machine can handle, so if you're in the know please chime in.
