These seem to have disapeared off the internet. It is very important that I get a copy, I need to temporarily get all of the computers in our school's computer lab to run linux for a programming class :). So it would be really handy if you could point me to a url of the ISO. Thanks!

Have a look at http://www.metadistribution.org/gentoo/ There you can find a lot of LiveCDs. Currently they are in a testing state. If you find bugs or need something added, have a look at Bug 41056.

Thanks for testing! :-)

I tried the g3g4.iso on my TiBook (867mhz) and I got it to boot, I am posting this post from it (gnome). :)

I found that if I hold down the c key on bootup it will boot the cd and avoid the yaboot, if you have one installed. Because the yaboot will try to boot the cd (it will take a very long time to do it).
I used Xeasyconf with no problem.

I've been looking everywhere for this iso since seeing an old post..

downloaded and it worked fine.. kde seemed superior

FYI:
i needed to: Xeasyconf
then:nano /etc/rc.conf
to set the environment variables to gdm & Gnome or kdm & kde-3.2.0
before i: startx

didn't find mac-on-linux on it as mentioned in the old posts.. really wanted to!

i'll have to learn how to build that in until someone else does.

Are there any other sources? The one mentioned above does not allow downloading...
