G3 Mac and Edubuntu help
I will say here now I now jack about Macs
And I wasn't sure if to put this here or in Nixs
I have an old G3 Mac at home that has been sat in a cupboard for a long time so I decided to let my six year have it I booted it and all I get is one folder in the middle of the desktop. It used to boot fine so I gues that its dead. So I thought I remember a converation about edbuntu being installed on G3s with good results.
I downloaded the PowerPC version but it just won't boot I have tried the firmware boot and the normal method and I get a message that block0 can't be read.
Does anyone know if a cd has to be burnt differently for Macs? or is there another reason.

Re: G3 Mac and Edubuntu help
I think I may have just found an answer to my problem. Apparently G3 Macs can't read cdr disks and need images to be burnt onto cdrw's so I'm just trying now and will post back the results later
No tried that and I am getting the same error
