I've heard that there is a special made kernel to use if you've got a Macintosh. How do i install it during the installation and where can i get it? I doesn't mean the kernel on the CD...
I have problem with the installation, and i think it's becouse of the kernel.

There is no specific version for PPC, the current development-sources or gentoo-dev-sources work just fine. Personally (Tibook rev III, Powermac G5) I prefer the latter but currently the only difference I found between these two is that Firewire works reliably with gentoo-dev-sources but not with development-sources (which is weird--I see no Firewire patch in genpatches--but I don't care).
