There seems to be no image for the G5. I seeimages for the G3 and the G4 - the G5 seems missing. Am I correct?

CD 1 is universal (boots anything powerpc (includes G5))

CD 2 is for optimized packages. No G5 optimized packages yet because the code in the compiler perfoming the G5 optimization has a few issues with I/O. When these are fixed, I'll produce G5 optimized stages and packages. For now use G4 or generic PPC. :-)

Since there is no G5-optimized image, does that mean the fans in the G5 will be running 100%?

nope, modprobe therm_pm72 will control your fans.

There is a G5 optimized kernel available on the livecd :-) But no optimized packages yet, only generic ones for the G5.

Well, I have tried the G5-SMP kernel from the live CD and there is no control of any fan. Might be the single G5 kernel where it is implemented but at least on the live CD it's not the G5-SMP kernel.
