Searching online suggests that the filename is "darwinppc-801.cdr.gz",
not "Darwinppc -801.cdr.gz".

The "gz" indicates that this is a gzipped compressed archive.  You will
want to run gunzip on it, before burning the resulting original image.

By the way, I personally never found Darwin all the useful or
interesting (although admittedly it's been a long time).  If you're
looking to run a BSD on PowerPC, in my view, you're much better off
using FreeBSD or NetBSD (or one of the "desktop" offshoots of those

On the other hand, if you're just curious, then good for you.
