How to fix “The system is running in low-graphics mode” error?

I have a PPC G4 tower with XCLAIM VR RAGE 128 PRO PCI DVI MAC, Microsoft mouse and a Crywolf Coolmac silicone keyboard.

I was able to live boot from the CD. Turned the computer on and it live booted. I got an error message saying it was running in low graphics mode because it could not recognize the graphics card or the other input devices.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Peachy Aug 25 '12 at 13:44
If we are being pedantic then there is no question in the question. So it is impossible to answer the question. – rsavage Aug 25 '12 at 22:55
