I downloaded and burned the 2004.1 minimal PPC livecd using Disk Utility. Holding down "C" to boot from the LiveCD does not work; it simply boots up in OS X.

I tried entering boot cd /boot/G4 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc looptype=gcloop cdroot at the OF prompt, to no avail. Can't open "cd".

BUT, upon changing cd to cdrom, OF loads the boot program. Which then flashes some text to the screen and quits, replaced by OS X's "no disk" symbol.

I have a Sawtooth G4. It might be of interest to note that I swapped the OEM DVD drive for a retail SuperDrive (a Pioneer DVR-103, to be precise).

Any ideas on where to go from here?
