I took a look at the Ubuntu Desktop image.  I could not get it to
produce a useful installer environment.  Without
snd-powermac.blacklist=yes" bug 1066435 occurs.  Without
"video=radeonfb:1280x854-32 at 60" no usable graphics occur, but it is
apparent through the mess that some dialog has been reached.  With
video=... the boot process rolls along until a black screen occurs and
then it stays stuck there.
