    Here’s the download page. The alternative Mac PowerPC installer is in the middle of the page. Make sure you download the PowerPC version, not any of the other alternatives.

    Downloading it now. I have a Power Mac G4. Does Ubuntu identify and use AirPort cards well? What are your thoughts on Yellow Dog Linux?

    Yes well when they can get audio to work properly on a G5 in Ubuntu I will be impressed.

    Ubuntu and others treat G5’s as a ugly redheaded step child.

    Lot’s of good stuff from the community, the organizations however as usual fail.
