Re: making a cd bootable for a mac


I'm in the same boat and when I try booting from the cd i get a message
that says "The disk "Debian 2.2r0i386 Bin-1" cannot be selected as the
startup device because it does not have a valid System Folder or the disk
driver software does not support startup selection".

so yes, it would be very nice to learn how to boot from it anyway....

thank you,
