Because the OS x is virtually maxed out for the machine, I was looking to the near future and wondering wether to try Ubuntu PPC on the machine and that would require a dvd boot up to achieve, I think?
Ok...now I'm totally confused!
This info doesn't really pertain to what we've been discussing.
You mentioned trying to boot from a DVD disc...and now you say no discs...how can that be?
Also...you mentioned this eMac has 10.3.9 on it. It can actually/officially can run up to OS 10.4.11...and if you use a program called "Leopard Assist" you could run up to OS 10.5.8 (although I wouldn't necessarily recommend it)...since this eMac's cpu is on the slower side for 10.5.
In any case...if you feel that you've gotten the info you needed...good luck with the eMac.
