Re: Installation: xserve G4 with broken CD drive
If it was my machine, I'd spring for a replacement DVD drive. YMMV
That said, can you boot it from a USB stick? Most NewWorld PowerPC
Macs can. The Wheezy installer works fine. I posted to the debian-
powerpc list some instructions for doing this with the subject
"Detailed notes: How to boot and install Debian from a USB stick
on a PowerPC Mac"
in August, 2012.
Hope it helps!

Is my approach valid? Have I made some not-so-obvious mistake in
the config or ybin, or should I just give up and track down a
replacement CD drive?
