Mac G4 with no OS: can Ubuntu be used?
I recently received a iMac G4 with no OS, so instead of buying OSX I though 'why not try Ubuntu'. I have it running om my laptop right now so I know how to install Ubuntu in principle.
However, when I put in a brand new hard drive it would not load the Installation CD (it is the ppc). So I got my junk old Windows PC and installed Ubuntu 12.04 just fine until I put it back into the iMac. In there it is just showing me the Finder Icon and question mark. Even though the Ubuntu was tested and works just fine.
