    Yes..you would just have to reformat the hard drive and pop in a Linux or Windows install disc.

    May I ask why you would want to do this?

    That's odd. I coulda swore you needed to use OS X's Boot Camp Assistant to install Windows on a Mac.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    If it's an Intel Mac (with OS X) then installing Linux and Windows may be possible with some effort. I think you may have trouble locating the proper Linux and/or Windows drivers for your Mac, however. If it's an older Mac with the Motorola CPU running Mac OS (as your OP indicates it is), then the answer is no.
