Hello, how is everyone? I just got myself an apple ibook and all I want to do is run linux on it. I have been researching the approaches I can take and I think I will start slowly with a live cd. I read about the gentoo kde live cd and it seems right up my ally, only problem is I can't find it anywhere! Can someone please help me locate an iso. Also I will be burning it using my linux box, is there anything I should know before I start. Thanks

I checked the links but I don't see anything with kde in the filename. Do you know which one it is. I'm sorry for the inconvenience but I would really appreciate a hyperlink to the file or paerhaps the containing folder if you know where it is.

Thanks

I read too fast and didn't see you wanted a *kde* live cd - I'm afraid there is no.

However, there is a knoppix ppc cd at http://debian.tu-bs.de/knoppix/powerPC/. maybe you want to try this and install gentoo via the "install from knoppix", see install handbook (of course you can install gentoo using the ppc live cd, but using the knoppix way you've got a running kde system at hand. just don't forget to install gentoo :) )

I'm sorry if i missed this in the documentation, but what init= tag shold i use for the gnopix cd? I tried init=/linuxrc, but it was trying to write on the cd (go figure) and eventually gave me a kernel panic.
