I've installed Linux Ubuntu 5.10 on my old iBook, with a PowerPC processor.
During the installation I gave the following answers to the following questions:
I chose not to set up the network.
I chose to wipe the entire hard drive.
I chose to partition the disk.
The installation afterwards was a complete success.
However, now when I boot the computer up, it gives me a DOS-style command prompt and I have no idea what to do with that. An actual operating system would be nice, and it's been extremely frustrating ever since. Anybody got any help for me?

Repost on the Apple users forum (http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=328). You are likely to get the help you need there.
