Do you know how to boot Mac OS X and do a net install?
As I would like to install a dual boot system.

Hi Karun,

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 
kernel and initrd should work:


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