Hi !
Have you started the computer with the CD as startup drive (by holding down the button "C" on the keyboard)? Then a window will appear that shows the installer. Double-click on it and it should run. Try this at first.

hi
thanks for the reply
it looks like i have a bad disk i have managed to get as far as rebooting with the disk in but it just restarts back to jag,and i have doubts that leopard will actually work at all with a g4 without really digging deep and i dont have the knowledge to do this,so at the moment im trying to source another copy of tiger on ebay,failing that it loks like a new imac lol
cheers

To get Leopard on that G4, you'll need to download an app called Leopard Assist. Otherwise, you're stuck with Tiger as the maximum OS for that machine.
