    Ibook with a very confusing Linux Mandrake 9.1.

    I want to install OS X.

    Booting off of 10.3 CD holding the C key gives a:

    Unable to find distribution, Panic: We are hanging.

    Error message superimposed over the grey apple background.

    Please help. This OSX 10.3 cd image was burned as a backup on windows.

    If you burn a mac install CD do you have to make sure it is Joliet, or UDF?

    You had a kernel panic.

    You need a copy of the OS X that is copied via Disk Utility. Or... a legal version.

    Yes I agree with you.
