Installing Mandrake 9.1 for PowerPC


I have IBM RS6000 PowerPC which had AIX installed. Now I want to install Mandrake Linux for PowerPC on it. I downloaded 3 CD images for the OS and tried to install it, but the CD doesn't have bootable image in it. I think we need to create bootable disks to boot the OS, but the problem is how to do that??? Has anyone ever installed or tried to install the OS on a Power PC?? Please help!!!!!!!
