There's no official Java 1.6 for PPC. But, if you'd have 10.5, you could try this: http://landonf.bikemonkey.org/static/soylatte/

I found this blog and this video tutorial, but can someone help me follow the tutorial, im not a mac user, and have no clue what hes doing, i got as far as renaming the folder then opening up the terminal, got the first line in, but not what hes doing after.

-first line he types in is

echo $PATH

-then this line pops up

/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin

not sure what he does next? or how he gets the .profile textedit open?

also no i got the soylatte16 folder in desktop. not download.
