I wonder if anyone else is seeing this:

I have a dual 1.25 G4 which will not boot to the universal or minimal 2004.0 ppc discs. Using the normal holding-C-key during boot, the cd starts to load, the blue background appears -- and it freezes right there.

Same discs boot just fine on a 533 g4, and a 733 g4. The blue screen appears, and the first installer messages appear right after that for kernel selection.

Buglike? Quirk of the duals?

I've had a lot of wierd issues with the 2004.0 livecd, and it seems that a lot of people with Mac's have too. I would recommend giving the 1.4 gentoo cd a try. Once you get booted off of that you can go ahead and download the latest stage package.
Hope that works out for you :D
