I have semi-successfully installed Fedora 17 on my Titanium PowerBook G4, 1GHz (as the only OS, for now). The installer did run fine after setting the "cd" devalias and boot parameters "rd.driver.pre=pata-macio" and "usefbx".

After rebooting, the bootloader doesn't get past Stage 1 and enters a loop:

First Stage Fedora Bootstrap

Press l for Fedora,
      c for CDROM,
      n for Network,
      o for OpenFirmware.

Stage 1 Boot: l
Loading second stage bootstrap...

And after that, it goes back to OF searching for a bootable volume, and loading Stage 1.
Options "c" and "o" can be used to break the loop, but I'd really like to run Fedora from my HDD ...
Any help getting this to run greatly appreciated.
