I installed it on my PowerBook (running Hoary PPC) and it looked nice
but I couldn't use it because the wizards (and maybe some other parts)
require a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) installed. If you're running
an Intel or AMD machine your procedure for installing Java is much
simpler than on PPC. (For example Sun's Java is not "free" as in
speech, and they don't make a version for PowerPC.)

So you may be able to use it if you get Java going first. If you don't
have a JRE installed it will load and will be somewhat usable but will
not be able to use any wizard.
