The installer doesn't know how to make a hard disk bootable by the Mac
yet. We're working on it. Don't let it autopartition -- make sure you
make a bootstrap partition of 800K (or 1M if the installer doesn't let
you specify 800K). Then when it's finished installing but before you let
it reboot, follow the instructions at
http://www.bytebot.net/geekdocs/ibook/fedorappc.html to install yaboot.
Join #fedora-ppc on freenode and someone will talk you through it.

Yes. http://fedora.linux.duke.edu/fedorappc/ has a known good working
tree from which you can run up2date. I think
doesn't have a mac boot.iso right now for some reason.
Once the installer is finished it'd be nice to make a real FC2 release
