I'm working on an iBook G3 for school, and whenever we booted from CD's or other harddrives, the display would mess up- stripes, different colors, and my mouse cursor was a block! That startup image (the Apple on white) is crystal clear, but upon loading into the OS, it messes up. I booted from Panther, and just wiped it clean.. the whole install was messed up, but I managed to find my way through and format. After formatting, it was still messed up. I thought it was a hardware problem, but with the display looking crystal clear with the Apple, I figured it couldn't be!
