    I want to set my Ibook up to run both mac os X and a linux partition. I am new to linux so im looking for something that is easier to learn on. I also would like it to be able to run my airport card. Any suggestions?

    you have a couple of different options:
    SUSE, Red Hat, Mandrake, or Yellow Dog

    If you want to download and brun the image, then my best recomendation to you is Yellow Dog. They update thier system the most, and they have the best support for Apple hardware, and best of all it is free. Go here for Yellow Dog:

    if you want the fastest and easiest to maintain distro, go with gentoo. it takes a long time to install and isnt the easiest to do so, but once it is done you cant beat it.

    Wow! This company Terra Soft and their Yellow Dog Linux OS seems really cool. Does anyone have any experience with these guys? Has anyone tried out their Mac-on-Linux software?
