I am currently migrating from the internal drive of my iBook to my externeal FW drive, which is a good move to begin with because it is faster. After that i am going to format and partition the internal drive and install a stripped down Panther on one and YellowDog Linux on the other. Anyone have any last minute advice that I might find useful? I am on a 500Mhz G3 iBook, with 640MB and a 10Gig drive. I decided that I would throw Linux on here really just to get an idea about how to use it and whatnot. I do not plan on using it as my primary OS. I have little knowledge of how to actually use it so this will pretty much be a learning from the beginning sort of thing. should be cool i think. Thanks in advance for any advice. How about a link to places where there are programs for linux on Mac...as i am not sure what to even search for, i would imagine that any program writen for an x86 version of linux would have to be recompiled for PPC. again, this is all new to me.
