    I was curious about this and I did some digging....

    Ubuntu 7.04 PPC is going to be unofficial -- they're dropping PPC from their official development program beginning with this version. I think they haven't updated their page yet to take the 7.04 off the official distribution page, though, which is why you still see a link, but it leads nowhere.

    I think you want to get it from this page, instead:

    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/7.04/release/ubuntu-7.04-desktop-powerpc.iso

    (note the "ports" -- as opposed to, in the past, PPC not being considered a ported platform)

    EDIT: Or, of course, you can use the torrent. :eek:

    feisty ppc is no longer official, so i had no idea it was even available for download.

    ah i was just on that site, no ppc download. The torrent worked great. I dont know why i didnt think of that. Too bad it doesnt work with windows vista, or does it?

    Thanks again!

    What do you mean by work with Windows Vista? Do you mean the Ubuntu-in-image thing?

    BTW, regarding the PPC link I displayed, I'm trying to download from it right now. It's working, albeit slowly.
