I have two systems
Powerbook G4 1GHz 1GB ram "60GB" (60*10^9 bytes) HD system that I
can't seem to get Yaboot to load on. I was able to load just Ubuntu on
this one, but I am emailing you from this now, and must have MacOS on
this system (I'd perfer to have a dual boot, but if I can't get yaboot
to install, it won't work).
Of corse, if I can get both Mac and ubuntu to install without yaboot,
this would be ideal (obviously my system and yaboot are incompatible --
evidenced by the inability to load).
I have an older system PowerPC G3 266MHz 192MB ram, 2 hard drives a
4GB (which I don't want to touch) and a 15~20GB HD, both presently
formatted in HFS+ but the larger one has no files on it, in preperation
to load linux on there when I get the time/version that'll work on a
beige G3 w/ built-in scsi and 2 ADB ports (I also have a USB card, I
put in a few months after purchase). The system was assembled in
November 1998. It came with OS 8.5 and currently has OS 8.6 on it. I
tried the same warty release CD I successfully used on my laptop, can't
boot from it.
