Hello, I've read through some of the postings, and I *think* I've done this right but I would sure apreciate some help...
This is my first attempt at installing a Fedora distro on the PPC, so bear with me...
I start with a clean, unformatted 10GB drive.
Using the *manually partition* option in FC4, I create:
Apple bootstrap: 1MB
/ : fill up the rest
At this point it usually takes me through the NIC config, etc. When it gets to where it's supposed to be creating and formatting the file systems, I sometimes get a message telling me that the kernel isn't aware of changes made to /dev/hda, at which point the installer dies and I have to reboot. When I come back to the partition screen, the Apple bootstrap is gone, and the ext3 partition hasn't been formatted. I thought it may have been a bad drive but the unit checks out fine.
One time, it actually *did* go through everything and properly ejected the installation DVD and prompted me to reboot. After it did, all I got was the "OS not found" flashing questionmark folder icon.
Do I HAVE to have OS X installed? I'd rather just have Fedora...
Any help would be greatly welcome! I'm going nuts!
