1. Can linux be installed on a eMac/1.42ghz without mac os,
2. if not can linux be dual-booted with mac os?
3. can you boot an eMac from usb/flash drive?

I boot different ( fast & tiny Puppy/Slitax/TinyCore) linux distro's from usb drives on my Pc's laptop/desktop they run real quick & you dont need 500000Gb ram.

I dont want a virtulization program to run linux.

regards
marvin

Yes you can, but it depends on whether the distro has a PowerPc compiled installer. Ubuntu works and can boot from its own partition
