View Full Version : fedora core 2 instalation problems...

22nd November 2004, 11:58 PM
Here's my problem... I have an old Ibook laptop running mac OS9. I want to install fedora core 2 on it. How do I do it?

P.S. It's not set up to detect an operating system from the CDrom Drive. How do I do this?

uh... i am not completely sure, but CAN you install fedora on a mac-lappy?
i do only know of ubuntu and yellow dog as mac-lappy compatible distros...

google: fedora core mac ppc. you will find some info on it...

just a few:

and here to download the actual files:

not sure about your boot cd problem, but there is some inkling I think in the bytebot link above... also, I believe if you want to install without boot from cdrom you may have to put the necessary file(s) in the root dir of an OSX installation.
