I am trying to install FC4 on Wallstreet Power Book G3. This is the first time i am trying to install linux!!!
Since this is a powerbook with the oldworld-ROM, I can not use yaboot(as i read in linuxppc.org). So, I booted into Mac OS 9, and installed BooX loader.
With the kernel arguments for BootX (video=atyfb:vmode:14,cmode:32,mclk:71 single) , I am finally able to get into the FC4 anaconda installer. (I have the CDs)
Every step after that went through fine. And when i finally rebooted, I don't get no where!!!
To find what the problem is, I booted onto Mac OS 9 CD. I see only one partition on my hard drive named "bootstrap", which contains yaboot.
I guess, for some reason FC4 installer is installing yaboot bootloader. But yaboot doesnt work with Oldworld Powerbooks.
Then I went through the installation guide at http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/fedor...l-guide-en/fc4/
I discoverd that I never really got this screen
during my installation. I never was able to switch off the install of bootloader.
What should i do to get this screen ?
Is there any kernel argument i can pass, to stop the installer from installing the bootloader ?
