Linux Ubuntu Installation Question

maxwell edison
Okay, I'm a Linux novice, but my son dragged me into the Linux world when he attempted to install the operating system on his Mac - a G5 Power PC. Yes, he downloaded the correct Ubuntu O.S. and ordered the proper DVD for the Mac Power PC (or so he claims).

The problem we're having is with the installation process.

The computer detects the DVD and boots up accordingly, automatically launching the installation process. After entering the vital user information, we make the selection to install making a new partition that utilizes the entire disk.

The installation process quickly advances to 10 percent, then goes back to zero percent, then quickly advances to show 5 percent - and then it all freezes.

Any ideas?
