Ok so i have received the Ubuntu 10.10 cd in the mail

does the cd work for PowerPC Macs?

Mac OS X 10.4.11
700 MHz PowerPC G4

If the answer is yes, then how do i launch it?

I tried holding "c" when i restarted and it didnt do anything. it actually messed up some settings.

No. You'll need an earlier version. PowerPC was an officially supported architecture for Ubuntu between versions 4.10 and 6.10.

You can still install 10.10 as long as it is a PPC version. Don't expect a smooth ride.
