I too have a G4 (cube), and i try from time to time to get freebsd installed 
on it.  current state of affairs last i tried, was the the ppc sysinstall was 
not able to write changes to a partition table (ie, cannot remove old and 
then recreate new) partitions.  also, the boot loader is a bit screwy, and i 
decided i would try again later when things worked more like they do on i386.


forgive my foul language, but linux-ppc works like a charm.
