Hi, I had posted earler that just pressing enter at the boot prompt
all I get is a white screen. Then Alex Kanavin said to try

Alex suggested I try the ubuntu ppc, which I downloaded
and burned on my F13 (x86) machine. I booted it on
the powerbook G4 in 32 bit mode and I chose the live-powerpc
and it came up just fine.
For the record, I tried the args
and it failed to boot (memory fault).
So, is the Powebook G4 a 32 only bit powerpc cpu or is
the dvd I downloaded for the 32 bit only?
If the DVD is for 32 bit only, then when I press the tab
key for the boot args, why would it print the option to
boot in 64 bit mode?
The G4 is 32-bit, not 64-bit.
