I'm having the same problem, but with an oldworld desktop, PowerPC6500, exact same issues though, uses different software, Roxio.

I got a problem like yours some time ago, with the 1.4 live cd...I get it work using another cd for the boot (like yellow dog) and installing gentoo from this live cd kernel.....but now I've re-installed gentoo with the 2004.0 live cd and it works fine....
Have you used an old live cd?

FYI: the oldworld 6500 will not be able to boot any linux install CD (Apple won't let anyone use their bootloader code without licensing it)
