Re: making a cd bootable for a mac

Hello Matthew,

mkhybrid is a tool that can make cross platform bootable CD.
I know that it can be compile on Linux and on Cygwin (a windows NT port of bash and others GNU tools).

Recently, I used mkhybrid on Cygwin to make a Prep-powerpc bootable cdrom image. Then a used Adaptadec Easy Creator to burn it.

Hope that, this can be usefull for you.

I'm a long time Debian/intel user who decided to switch to the powerpc
platform.  Anyhow, I have a new Sage imac DV+ I'm just dying to get debian
installed to.  However, being relatively new to the mac, constructing mac
bootable cd's from the debian .iso is a bit of mystery to me.  Do I have to
burn it on a mac to make it bootable?  Are there any other considerations I
should know about when burning the cd?  Any pointers would be greatly
appreciated.  Like I said, I'm a bit anxious to get debian up and running.
I'm not on the list so please cc: matthewk@pitt.edu
