Ok, I was able to download all of the 440 mb of files in the Redhat folder
and I burned a cd with them.
Now I see that there are a few other files that must be downloaded too,
such as the linux.live.gz and the LinuxPPC_1999_installer.bin, and the
macutilities. I've downloaded them onto the computer that I will be
installing linux on.
Now, the guide is not clear on a couple of things. I had formatted my
hard drive into 2 partitions last year with the intention of putting linux
on the second, which is hfs. However, my main partition is in the hfs+
format. I've got some linux files on the cd and some on my hard drive and
I'm not sure how to proceed. I ran the installer and it says it can't
mount linuxppc.live, so I've got a problem with the hfs+ I'm guessing.
Should I copy all of the linux files onto the hfs partition and then run
the installer? I'm confused about this because the installer puts stuff
into the Mac system folder, which is on the hfs+ partition. Do I need to
install the mac os onto the hfs partition and use it as the startup disk?
