    Howdy Folks:

    Have been getting kernel panics daily now since an issue with Transmission 1.01 and iTunes update ;

    I will like to install a 500G Hard Drive into this G5 iMac 17" 1.8 and fresh install Tiger and Ubuntu - dual boot these -
    Anyone done such here - have read a few things I scoped on the web

    thought i would ask the wizards here ....

    Cheers in advance

    Does Ubuntu have a PPC version? My suggestion would be to back everything you want to keep on the external drive and do a fresh install of tiger.

    according to the Ubuntu Wiki site - many have been successful installing 7.04 Feisty Ubuntu Linux - has a section dedicated for Apple PPC users

    I will give this a try
