I just gor a beige G3 (300mhz) with OS 9.0 installed, I want to install ydl but it won't let me boot the cd. The cd will show up in OS 9 and I can browse it but when I choose it as the startup disk it will just boot into OS 9.

Is it correct that I can't boot from CD-r's larger then 650MB ?

Find the ydl installer in the Mac window,It will take over and erase the
hard drive or create a linux partition..You need like a 10 gig drive.

You mean, boot in OS 9, open the YDL cd and then click the ydl installer ?

If Ydl will not boot when you hold down the C key,you will have to find
the Ydl installer and go from there, My version is 3.0.1 and theres 6 install dics.

Nevermind, i installed a 30 gig hard drive and installed OS X 10.2 on it.
Question i do have is about a PCI videocard, the integrated video is kinda flakie so i put in a ATI video card which has the Mac video connector and the regular VGA connector on it. If I hook up the monitor to the PCI card it don't work, do I need to do something ?

If the system did not find the card you will need a driver.Go to the makers web site or do a google. Sorry you did't do the Linux. Im not going to the Intel
macs,Im doing SUSE on a PC box.
