    Have anyone used YDLinux (or Mandrake 9.1) on the latest 12 inch
    Powerbook?
    Will it work, and what features won't work?
    (external video, sleeping, airport, bluetooth etc...)
    I was hoping to run YDLinux and Panther on the same machine

    Look on their site and see if they support it. Most likely do. And you can dual boot it with OS X, I have done it in the past. Only problem I had was with the single button mouse and I didn't know how to do a right click.

    Terrasoft lists the 2003 model compatible, but nothing about the 2004 (rev C),
    The also sells G5s with YDL, but thats an another version, which cant be downloaded. The DL able version wont work on a G5 they claim, but i dont know if its true.

    Anyone knows about BT and APextreme?

    Not sure about bluetooth, but AE will definitely not work :( Apple's AE card uses the Broadcom chipset, which they have refused to release tech info for, making it near-impossible to build a driver.
