Which G5 do you mean? It should work AFAIK.

I'd recommend waiting until Fedora Core 4 Test 3 is out later today.

Boot up the OS X installer
Select the Installer menu from the top menu bar.
Choose Open Disk Utility... from the Installer menu.
Disk Utility will open up, click on the Hard Drive and choose 3
create a small (say 100 Mb) partition at the start - choose format "Free
create an OS X partition = Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
create a large a free partition for linux (enough for / and swap)
Based on the Apple store specs you'll have either 160GB or 250GB so you
can probably split the remaining space after the first free space
partition evenly between OS X and linux.
Install OS X to your OS X partition. Boot into it and ensure working.
Boot off the mac64 boot.iso on the FC4 test3 CD1/DVD and install Fedora.
Should hopefully get you going.
