I have a 400Mhz iMac that I want to install Linux on.
I'm a Wintel person wanting to explore Linux. I've installed Red Hat and Madrake on a few PCs and played around with it then this iMac was given to me. I know that the core of OS X is Unix, FreeBSD I think but I always like a challeng.
So I have the iMac and I am downloading the ISO images of Mandrake 9.1 for the PPC then I will burn them.
Then what? What is the next step to get Linux installed? Does the system become a dual boot computer? Can you install Linux and remove OS X?
I've never installed Linux on a mac to be honest, and I haven't installed Mandrake for years. I would think that Mandrake would completely over-write OS-X, however, you may be best served by trying a more linux-centric forum. www.justlinux.com springs to mind
