Hi everybody.
I'm writing from Italy. I' m interesting to experience Gentoo on my iMac G3 Ruby. I underline that I just want to try and, right now, not to install Gentoo from a Live Cd distro. So the question is: how should I go on at the boot? Thanks. Hoping for a reply. Frananc

The gentoo cd's available for ppc machines are not livecd's like knoppix or ubuntu that come with a GUI and all sorts of desktop apps. The gentoo cd's are just enough to boot and install (or repair) gentoo. So you can try out a very basic and minimal gentoo installation with the cd's, but that's where it ends too.
