Did you install with the 6.06.1 iso? If it didn't work, then that's a bug.

Can you give more precise details? Like, error messages, etc. And what

That said, Ubuntu has never promised to cover old-world macs; not only 
are they old and few in number, they pose considerable challenges. Even 
NetBSD have trouble installing on them.
