I'd have thought that an installation CD image would be <700Mb, the typical size of a data cd. And indeed, the standard x86/amd64 installation CDs seem to be. However, that's not particularly useful for a PPC machine (imac g4, the sunflower one).

Is there any way to get a smaller install CD image (or perhaps a slightly outdated, but smaller one)?

The install-ppc64le-minimal-20210614T080607Z.iso seems to be smaller

--edit--
But G4 is 32bit? if yes is correct to use install-powerpc-minimal-20210624T092134Z.iso

--edit 2--
