    n00b question
    Hi.. I got this older G3 imac sitting beside me, And the hard drive thats in it right now is blank, its not even partitioned yet. I dont have any mac OS disks, or else i would just install that on it. so I'm looking to put fedora core or ubuntu on it. but i cant seem to get any of the cds to boot, even when holding C down while rebooting. Can someone please help me? thanks in advance.
