    Tiger install problem..no choice of install location ?
    Trying install a legal tiger on my G4 titainium powerbook and on the 3rd step after the agrreement it is choose install location but I have no location shown to click on,the only active button is the GO BACK to the agreement screen ... :dummy:


    Now it has linux on it already but was told I did not have to format before tiger install ?

    Also how does one eject the disc ??

    Well if it has linux on a single partition, you most likely will need to reformat.

    Select 'tools' from the menu bar and then 'disk utility' to reformat the disk to HFS+ and then it should work.

    To eject the disc, restart and hold down the mouse button until it spits the dvd out.

    I do not have that option or any other option to for disk management ?

    I have system tools but it only has a file browser and software update options ..


    Will take some screen shots with my camera and post them.


    I was also just told that the linux cannot be removed ??

    Are you sure?

    Check all the menu points...

    The menu bar appears a few screens into the installation process, if this is a regular tiger DVD it should pop up... :/


    As an alternative you can try booting off the original discs that came with the powerbook if you have them and boot disk utility off of that.
