Hi all.

I know this is not really a gentoo question. But because of it's nature, mac people can't seem to help me. The problem is that my network card is broken and I need to return my ibook to the dealer and get it repaired on the warrenty. But I heard that they don't like Linux, so I need to remove yaboot and replace it with the mac boot loader.

How do I do this? I have done it before, and I remember it was something with opening the disk utility and then something. But I have tried for hours and nothing happens.

Thanks in advance!

I got it! after a lot of googling and trying, I found "startup disk" in preferences. This is the disadvantage of not knowing the native os well, I guess...
