Hey, so I'm a complete noob to Ubuntu and Linux all together. I'm trying to install Ubuntu version 8.04.1 (which I believe is supposed to work on PPC) on my old eMac from a cd I burned (I verified the CD). Everything with the install worked fine, but when I booted it, it went to the Ubuntu startup load screen, then went to a completely black screen. From this point I can't even do anything. Also, there is no existing OS on this computer. I'm re-installing it right now to see if that helps anything, but I do not have my hopes up.

Computer Specifications:
Model:eMac - PowerMac6,4
Processor: PowerPc G4
Processor Speed: 1.25 GHz
Memory: 1GB

If you guys could guide me though step-by-step, that would be great :)

If you have Debian, you might want to change it into Linux Mint Debian ;)
