OK.  I have a G4 PowerMac with

There is only an iso. Look for gtk-miniiso under powerpc/powerpc64:

So I went there and found

and from which I downloaded and burned the mini.iso

I booted from the CD and got repeating crashes when it tried to initialize the graphical installer

messages read in part (manually typed in -- I don't have any way to cut-and-paste from the crashed machine...)

Is there a different mini.iso ?
