So I'm hoping to get Fedora Core on my iBook G3 and I've found the downloads page: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/4/ppc/iso/ but I'm not sure which ones to download. Do I need the first 4 or the second 5? and do I need all of them or are some of them sources?

The disc images with "SRPMS" in their name contain source code packages. They aren't used for installation.

The folling comes of the Red Hat Installation pages. This is what you need to download for a G3 iBook.

For PowerPC (32-bit and 64-bit Macintosh, 64-bit pSeries):
FC4-ppc-disc1.iso
FC4-ppc-disc2.iso
FC4-ppc-disc3.iso
FC4-ppc-disc4.iso
FC4-ppc-disc5.iso

Than, to boot from them, hold "c" while booting.

wait wait wait
the question "if you really need ALL the 5 CD"s is a different matter.
What are you gonna do with your fedora installation? If you don't mean to run a LAMP server I suggest not to download at least the 5th image :D
