    You mean that you booted from the Installer CD? It's the alternate CD or the LiveCD?

    Ok, what you got is the yaboot (the linux kernel bootloader for ppc) prompt.
    Hit TAB to see the different options. For you iMac you could just hit ENTER, or if you want to see how the system boot write

    I Went Ahead And Pressed Return, It Showed The Xubuntu Logo And A Scrolling Bar Like XP Starting Up, The Bar Filled Up, The Monitor Turned Off (Like It Was In Sleep Mode), Turned On For A Sec., Turned Back Off, And Made A Beep.

    I've Left It Be For A While, And Now I'm Going To Check On It.

    Let's See What Happens!!!

    Didn't Work... That Stinks........

    Installing Linux on an iMac is not the easiest installing process. So, please, be patient.
    And it's already a good sign that you can boot with the splash image
    Let's try again with the LiveCD (but it would be easier with the alternate CD)
    Try this way
