Hi guys, I have a problem. I can't get _linux_ to install on my pismo (power book g3 firewire).

Firstly, holding down "C" does not really boot up the gentoo installation CD. I don't know why, since it did work for the OS X Tiger cd.

But that is not a big issue here, because I can boot the cd my holding down the option key, and then selecting etc..

Now this is the real problem: after I boot the cd, the screen just goes completly blank. I get no promt whatsoever. The laptop is running, yet the screen is just plain blank. I'm not even sure if gentoo-installation booted up.

What do I do? Why isin't it working?

btw: I'm trying the 2006.0 universal here. :)
