    I can't seem to figure this out.

    This is what I have done thus far. I have an external firewire drive and I made an iso of Tiger (from Original CD). I used Disk Utility to make what I think to be a bootable firewire drive.

    I selected the ISO as the source and the External as the Destination.

    When I hook up the external to the ibook and hold down the options key I have a gray screen with a refresh and and right pointing arrow. Nothing else.

    What am I doing wrong?
