I have no Mac, so I know very little about Macs. I think Lars Noodén is
our expert concerning several versions of Mac computers.
But I know about a thread by Quackers with a similar subject in the
Ubuntu Forums. See this link
I don't know how relevant it is, but I hope it can add some tips how to
solve your problem.
And finally a maybe stupid question concerning the ELF error: Is a
powerbook a powerpc? What iso file should be used for a powerbook?
