I had a friend who followed these instructions for Ubuntu
This isn't for the Ubunto 6.06 dapper release, but it looks like the
process should be nearly identical.  I think the biggest problem you
will have is that they put everything they possibly can on the CD and
leave little room for expansion (e.g. adding a bunch of scientific and
development tools).  It might be worth it to expand the existing LiveCD
and burn it back to a DVD, since the G5 powermacs can boot from a DVD.
