Does it work, I have had so many problems getting PPC64 to work. I can get it to boot to the base system but nothing compiles after that. Little apps do like irssi and lynx but xorg and everything fails. This is a waste of my time. Can I install PPC32?

I guess it depends what kind of G5 you have. I'm not quite sure, but the very latest revision of the P4 chip had some problems with PPC 32. But if your G5 is not brand new, PPC 32 won't be a problem (it's been working on my G5 for half a year now, and I found it very stable).
