I am a complete n00b when it comes to Linux. A friend of mine told me to check out Gentoo, and it looks pretty nice. I have a Powerbook G4 (August 05) and I would like to be able to boot both Mac OSX and Linux.

I have about 25 Gigs left on my internal HD, but I also have an external HD. Is there a way I can boot off of this external HD to keep the space on my Powerbook's internal HD maximized? I'm looking for a kind of guide to installing Linux on a Mac.

Thanks a lot,
Thidranki

The PowerPC handbook has instructions for installing on a firewire/usb drive as well. Please take a look at the handbook and our FAQ and feel free to ask us if you have any problems.
