Mandrake 10.1 PPC on a Firewire drive?
I have been trying to run Mandrake 10.1 PPC from my external FWD. I partitioned the drive in 3, one Apple format and the other 2 Freespace. The install went smoothly till we got to the Bootloader section. I created a space for Apple bootstrap (no mount point) and that was fine but when it came to configuring the Bootloader and wanting the info for default startup, etc... I started getting this error message, /usr/sbin/ofpath failed ...propagated. This I know has to do with the reason I can not boot into Linux at start up and only into Mac OS X. Yes I am trying to do this on a G4 PowerMac. I believe other than the yboot not happening at start up I do have Mandrake installed, but how to boot it? What would I type at the command line in the Firmware prompt? Currently if I want to boot the Linux CD I type: boot cd:,\boot\yaboot but all that does is give me a chance to reinstall which is not what I want to do (done that 5 times now).I suppose the question here is, is anyone running Mandrake 10.1 off an external FWD? I would sincerely appreciate any info on this? Thanks! :!:
