Okay, I'm using an OldWorld PPC G3, and I got BootX on it just fine. Now, the instruction tell me that I need to take the G3G4 kernels and G3G4.igz file off the Installation CD and put it in the Linux Kernal folder, except that the Installation CD is nothing but a .iso image file. Where am I suppose to get those files? Thanks.

Sounds like you didn't burn installation CD correctly. In your CD-burning program select "Burn Image" or similar to make your CD; don't just make a data disk containing the .iso file (which it sounds like you did).

Yeah, that sounds like what happened. It would be better to wait for 2006.0 as well, I've fixed a number of OW issues and it should be a whole lot easier to install on OW machines.

When is 2006.0 planning on being released?
