Hi jasiu512 , welcome to the Peppermint forum.  Unfortunately, Peppermint Five isn't ported for Mac PowerPCs.  As far as I know the only distros that are ported for them are, Debian, Ubuntu and Lubuntu.  I ran Ubuntu 12.04 LTS PPC on an old 15" G4 PowerBook until the HDD died.  It worked but it also had its limitations compared to a standard installation. I could never get Lubuntu to install correctly.  I have read good reports about Lubuntu 14.04 LTS PPC and Debian PPC though.  Sorry I can't give you better news. Here are some links: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCDownloads (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCDownloads) and https://www.debian.org/ports/powerpc/ (https://www.debian.org/ports/powerpc/).  Good luck  ;).
