Hi,
I have an old clamshell ibook, I want to install linux on it so I bruned an install CD, however, I had a hard time booting up from the cdrom because the cdrom cant read the disk faithfully, sometimes works some dont.
I then try reading the official apple installation disk that came with the laptop, the cdrom read the disk without any problem or re-try.
Is there anything I should know when making CD for ibook cdrom? disk quality, etc?? thanks!
QUOTE Thanks

I think you already know it. Don't use cheap media.
