Trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on my imac g4 computer. I have configured the partitions with the apple boot-strap being first, followed by the hard drive, then the swap. After a successful installation I then restart. At this point I am prompted with the yaboot bootloader with a

boot:

prompt. After hitting enter it does a bunch of stuff and then gives me a black or white screen.

HELP.

I've been trying to re-configure my partitions (I can't get a straight answer online how to do it). and various commands with the boot: prompt but I cant seem to get anywhere. I have some experience in the past with Linux but I've rarely done a CMI. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
