Why? We have miBoot.  Won't that work on a CD?

OK, call me ignorant, but it would be cool of installing linux on a Mac was as easy as MacOS is to get started. Pop in MacOS 8.0 in a m68k to a 6500 and you're set, 8.5 or higher for newer macs.

I've been using linux on x86 for a couple years, and at the very worst, you need a floppy, and an ethernet/modem to install the base system.

miBoot works on hard drives, right?  Maybe you can point me at some docs...
