    I'm trying to install ubuntu on my ibook. I'm having enough problems following their instructions because there is no "Install" icon. Can someone help me? Also is it possible to have it dual boot?

    In order to install Ubuntu, you have to put the CD in, and leave it in so that it can boot into Ubuntu via the Live CD (reboot and it should default to the Live CD, or at least that is how it worked when I installed it on a Window's box). You can only install Ubuntu when using the Live CD. Took me a while to figure it out as well.

    A quick Google search gave me this page for dual booting Ubuntu and OS X. Hope that helps... :)
