Hi all,
I install Fedora Core Linux 11 (PPC Edition) on my G3 earlier and when I rebooted it came up with First Stage Fedora Bootstrap and gave me the option to load fedora, cdrom, network or openfirmware.

If I choose cdrom or fedora or do nothing it loads second stage then the blinking question mark appears. Openfirmware opens fine but I don't know what to change in there.
All I really want to do it boot either from CD to re-install Linux and maybe a better result, or re-install tiger.
However I can't boot from cd as it says and holding down buttons on startup does nothing. The only thing I can do on startup is reset the PRAM which hasn't helped much.
Otherwise from that I'm lost and have a useless mac
Please help,
QUOTE Thanks
