Error with Install CD on PPC iMac G3

Hi there,

I have an old iMac that I was wanting to play around with, and since linux
has been dropping PPC support left and right, I figured this would be a
good opportunity to play around with other Unices like FreeBSD.

Upon boot, the bootloader comes up and loads the kernel, then quickly
scrolling text followed by a reboot of the machine.

Here is a photo of the error:

Someone on Freenode told me "the exc register is being set wrong clearly
and getting into the wrong case of the switch block" (I'm not sure what
that means)

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
