Question Blank Screen on Core 5 PPC Install on iMac


Has anyone had experience installing Core 5 on a Mac? My particular problem is tha my 800 mhz flatpanel iMac (1st edition) will not install.

I downloaded the DVD for PPC and and the SHA1SUM is correct.

However I can boot into the install prompt but when I type linux the kernel loads but soon after the screen goes blank and the process hangs and the machine reboots about 5 min later.

I think the Xwindow system does not talk to the video hardware correctly but I a not sure.

ANyone had any success??
