Has anyone had any success re-vamping an old iBook G4 with a linux distro?


I've been searching the linux forums without success. I have an Ubuntu distro but the iBook G4 won't boot from the CD (I've tried the usual holding down 'c' and, when that didn't work, holding down 'opt' which at least got me a novel looking screen, but still not boot from the CD).


Am I missing a trick, or do I need a different distro?


Any help much appreciated.
