iBook G3 proplem
I recently bought an ibook G3 from a guy who said it needed a new OS. when i turned on the computer it has a non back lit screen (which makes it incredibly hard to see) but there is def a folder looking icon with a "?" in it. I bought a copy of OS X tiger from the tech shop at here at KU. How do i go about installing it? b/c when i put the disk in nothing happens. so I dunno how I am suppose to go about installing this. any help would be great! Thanks guys and gals!

First of all, you'll want to make sure you actually have a combo drive, and not a CD drive. Some G3 iBooks can read DVDs while others can only read CDs. If you've got the latter, you'll need Tiger CDs to make an installation (or a FW DVD drive, etc). To be honest, this computer sounds like a lemon.
Always on the lookout for longer battery life...

What if I use a USB Diskdrive? maybe then it would read. and the thing is. i cant just put an audio CD bc it has no OS to run anything. And to clarify. the back light flickers on and the shuts off. every time like for 5secs its on
