Double display on iBook G3

Hello everybody.
I've been getting a weird display on my Mac iBook G3 power PC W/ Dual USB.
This has happened on Kunbuntu 9.04 PPC and Ubuntu 9.10 PPC. Both are standard installed fully patched. Attached is a picture of the display as you can see the right 2 inches is black and 2 inches from the bottom is where the display start over again. If I take a screen grab from the Laptop itself i get a normal screen output?

Hello vlox333,

To note; there is no image attachments that I can see.

Fedora is reported as having excellent support for the Apple iBook's and the PPC architecture.
