Hello there..
I have a problem here. My CD drive is broken, so I need to do a disk less install. I searched for hours on the net, but haven't found something useful, so I'll hope that someone in here can help me. I have a server running Gentoo with NFS and DHCP working.

I don't want some dualboot thing on my G3 ibook, ONLY gentoo on it.

Maybe its possible to netboot the ibook, and then get it to use the cd-rom drive in my server ?

I hope you can help me, because i really need it :)

note. my server is a pc, and i dont have other PPC's.

Sorry for my bad english :(

I had the same problem as you, broken CD, want to install gentoo. However lucky for me I had multiple partitions and a (semi-broken) linux already installed. Do you have multiple partitions? Do you have Mac on there now?

NFS and DHCP/BOOTP from a PC could work, but I haven't done it so I can't help you there. Good luck, let us know how you end up solving it
