You'll need to netboot the installer image from a tftp server.

This page has a good set of instructions on netbooting a powerpc 


It's been a while since I've done this on the G4, but the following

Then once the installer is running, you can just point the installer at 
your closest ubuntu mirror, and it'll be peachy from there.
