You may find my notes from installing on a G4 Mac Mini and the
subsequent follow-ups useful, they're at
If I recall correctly, the final release of the 5.0 macppc ISO
image is still not bootable, so to get to 5.0, you still need to
use the 4.0 image. However, I think the radeonfb problem
described at the end of the above message was solved before the
final release of 5.0 (the above was done with a release candidate).

Sorry, I'm not even aware of what problem that would solve... I
certainly didn't have to use it to get my installation to go.
