I'm looking to install Gentoo on my PowerBook G4, but the internal cd drive is broken. I'd like to boot the live cd on my external firewire cd drive if possible. Holding down the option key at startup allows me to select the live cd when read from the external firewire drive, however booting from it does not work. Is there a way to use open firmware to boot a live cd from an external cd drive?
