Feisty Herd 5 on 20" iMac G5 Rev C - Alternate Install

After text install (using powerpc-64 with video=ofonly) the system booted and sound seemed to work but the screen was left black. After downloading the attached xorg config file Xorg now works, but there are 2 processes (Xorg and mouseemu) taking up all the CPU, making the system barely usable. A few minutes after logging in to the Gnome desktop the fans crank up to full speed and never return to normal. This may be related to the aforementioned runaway processes. Also wireless networking doesn't appear to be working out of the box.
