No it is not possible to do an install from the ftp iso due to the
fact that as far as I know all the package mirrors are now offline due
to archlinux ppc being a dead project. You would need a Core iso in
order to do an install.
I'd suggest you go with a distro that officially support PPC such as
Debian or Gentoo.
