My understanding is that you need a retail CD/DVD - that the ones that come with Macs won't work. Isn't a G5 a PowerPC model?

G5 is PPC and probably has OSX 10.4 Tiger included (in which case it would not work anyhow). Along with that, NetbookBootMaker and NetbookInstaller do not cooperate with non-retail disks [even if it did come with Leopard]

I think that's the nail on the head - for Mac and Win and Linux fans.
