Do you have the CD or DVD version of OSX? If you have the DVD version and are trying to install in a G4 that doesn't have a DVD-ROM, it won't be able to read it. If you have the CD version, then you may have to have the DVD version to get it to work. I have both, but usually the CD version doesn't work with most of the G4 and newer PPC Macs I've worked with. I'm not sure why, but the DVD works just fine.
