Re: Boot INSTALLED system from CD?
Thanks for the message, I really appreciate it Your answer raises a further
question, if you don't mind: Can I get a different version of yaboot that
will work? Ideally via download and burning it to a CD that will boot, but
if that can't be made to work then in some other fashion. I would be most
grateful for any suggestions.
