I had the same problem last night. Then I downloaded the
install document from the ftp directory where I got gunzip.
The problem I had was that I was trying to run it with
live.systemfile on my desktop. It needs to be in a folder on
the root of your hard drive.
Hope that helps,

I have had EXACTLY the same experience with both Lite and Live on my
G3/266 Desktop. Live worked just fine on my 6500 at home, and I am not
doing anything different on the G3. Glancing at the reports that flash by
on the screen, it looks like it is having trouble with the disk
formatting, which Get Info reports as Mac OS Standard, not HFS Plus. I was
planning on getting the version 5 CD, which will also have live booting,
but am wondering if it will also fail.
I have installed Linux on the internal IDE drive and things are much less
stable than when I used it off an external SCSI Jazz drive the two
- Linux failes to restart the machine properly (after shutdown and
restart), and my Powerbook clock gets way garbaged (it thinks its either
1930 or 2030!).
- One a couple of occasions the data on the Linux has stated that the data
on the boot drive was damaged (although Linux was shut down properly on
each previous boot).
