Fedora 7 on IMac G5 Problems Booting... i'm a newbie

hey everyone i'm pretty new, especially at installing operating systems and stuff so i am learning so please be patient hah. so anyways. i have an imac g5 and downloaded the DVD iso for ppc architecture computers, as the documentation says to do for my computer, and burned the iso to a dvd just fine. The problem arises when i try to boot and install from the dvd. i get to the initial boot menu just fine and hit return to boot the fedora iso from the dvd and it seems to go through a normal boot process then i get to a blue screen that is blank except for it says " Welsome to Fedora" at the top and " <Tab>/<Alt-Tab> between elements | <Space> selects |<F12> next screen" at the bottom. i try hitting all kinds of keys and nothing happens.

i tried downloading and burning a second, different iso and i get the same result. Any help would be GREAT!

thanks everyone.
