I am trying to install Gentoo PPC version on Mac Powerbook G3 Lombard. According to www.penguinppc.org
this is an oldworld machine that has to use a loader to install Linux. Two loaders are available, BootX that has to have MacOS present on HD and Quik that does not have to have MacOS and loads directly off the firmware. Here's what the penguinppc site says: "Old World Macs must use either BootX (which requires a bootable Mac OS installation) or quik (which must deal with the buggy firmware of that era)." I just want to ask if someone has experience with loading Linux on an old G3 machine by using either of the above methods. I want to load MacOS off the HD and just use Quik to install Gentoo, however the above statement warns that using Quik can be difficult. On the other hand i do not want to have MacOS on this laptop taking HD space. Could someone tell me what the best way to install Gentoo on this Powerbook G3 would be?
