    Ok, I don't know if I've just been a complete idiot this past day or what, but I cannot seem to get Backtrack 3 to load from a Live CD. Can you even run Backtrack 3 on an iBook G4 PPC Mac? I've burned 2 CD's of .iso's and tried figuring out a way to boot from a flash drive (which obviously didn't work) but nothing worked. When I try and boot from one of the discs I made it just boots straight into Leopard without even acknowledging a disc. Basically I just wanna know if it's possible to run a Live CD of Backtrack 3 on a PPC Mac, & if there is, do you have any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?

    I'm pretty sure backtrack is an intel only linux distro, at least I'm not aware of any PPC versions.
