I've ran disk utility's disk verify on Mac OS 10.4 on a PowerPC G4, and it told me the computer's volume should be repaired. I lost the install disks for now, so I booted it off a Tiger installation disk from another computer, only to get a kernel panic (white text with a black background on top of the Apple logo while booting). When booted from the startup disk and not the install disk, the computer boots and runs perfectly. I tried again with a disk I burned of a disk image I got online (this is legal because I already legally own Tiger) and got the same exact problem. I'm not entirely sure about this, but I think both of these disks are PowerPC versions.
First of all, is there any way I could avoid this and finally repair the disk (well I might be able to boot from another computer or something, but I doubt this is a normal problem)? Second, how can I make sure these really are PowerPC disks, and aren't just Intel disks that are screwing it up (which I somewhat doubt)?
Thanks so much for the help, this is really weird.
