I run Ubuntu on a ibook G4 at work.
Ubuntu is essentially debian so the same things work (or don't work, eg.
airport). However, I suspect ubuntu may be better tested on apple
hardware than debian in terms of the installer CD in particular.
To use debian you would have to use a snapshot installer of 'testing' or
'unstable', I do not think the stable (woody) install CD would boot an
To use ubuntu on the other hand, just download the latest stable release
(5.04, Hoary) from www.ubuntu.com and away you go.
