    .iso download not bootable?

    Hi. Complete newbie. After 10 years on macs I'd love to swich to Ubuntu, mostly for the spirit & code of conduct.

    I have not yet worked on Linux but want to load up Lucid Lynx on my 2 macs, but unfortunately they are both powerpc: desktop G5 and laptop Powerbook G4 titanium (old beast).

    I have downloaded a bunch of times the first .iso link on this page
    then burned to cd both with mac disk utility and Toast, but the cd's do not boot on either computer: I restart pressing C, hear that the optical drive starts reading but stops after 2 seconds and then regular OSX boots up.

    Am I doing something wrong or is the .iso falty?
    Thanks in advance.

    OK, I decided to try the .iso for Maverick Meerkat instead. Did the same process as above except I had to burn on DVD since the file is too big for cd... and it works. So I guess i'm Maverick for now!
