If anyone can at least tell me how to run the installation on the powerbook g4 i would be quite thankful.

Don't quote me on this, but....

I just checked the online installation manual at the CentOS website, and it mentions Intel, Amd, and some IBM systems architectures, but no mention of Apple architectures. From that, I assume that means it won't install on powerbook.
