Ok so I finally got bootx on the machine except according to the handbook it says i need th g3 kernel file initrd.img.gz. It is not on the universal disc and i can not find it anywhere to download just those files can someone please help

*edit* now it says on the actual universal cd handbook
Quote:
First, download BootX and unpack the archive. Copy the the BootX Extension from the unpacked archive into Extensions Folder and the BootX App Control Panel into Control Panels, both of which are located in your MacOS System Folder. Next, create a folder called "Linux Kernels" in your System folder and copy the apple kernel from the CD to this folder. Finally, copy apple.igz from the Installation CD boot folder into the MacOS System Folder.


there is no apple or apple.igz on the disc only g5 and that does not work
