Has anybody here got the latest Ubuntu release running on a G3 iMac? I've got an iMac G3/266 that I wanted to use as a Ubuntu test mule, but I can't get it to boot. I downloaded the Live CD & installer and went through the install process, got the successful install message, but now I can't get it to boot. On startup I get the folder with a question mark on it.
The hard drive has only the Ubuntu install on it -- no Mac OS at all -- so it's looking for a bootable Mac disk and not finding one; do I need to boot into open firmware to tell it to boot from the Linux install instead of Mac OS? If so, what do I tell it? (I'm definitely not a command line geek!) I've gone through the install docs looking for the specific commands, and it's either not there or don't know what I'm looking for (more likely the latter.)
Should I have gone about the install differently? i.e. put OS X or 9 on first, leaving some empty space for Ubuntu?
I posted the same question on the Ubuntu forums yesterday, and had lots of people read my post, but no replies with any hints at all. I'm sure I can get a better response here! Any help at all would be appreciated: Thanks!
