Hi all-

I have a new al 15" PB, which I would like to boot OSx/Gentoo on. I downloaded and burned the new gentoo grp cds 1 and 2 from the link in the sticky at the top of the forum. md5sums fine, look OK in OSx and on my gentoo x86 box.

Problem is I can't boot from the CD on the powerbook. I reboot, hold command+option+O+F, get the firmware screen, type mac-boot at the prompt, and then I get a globe, then a folder with a finder icon and a ?, then it boots to OSx!! What am I doing wrong here ? Do I need to type something different at the firmware prompt ? What gives ?

Thanks for any help!!!!

try just holding the C key when booting up your mac (right after you press the power button). Make sure the CD is in, of course.
