i have the rescent 12.1" variant, there is ab problem in the linux ide
driver which prevents accessing the diskt when a media is in the cd-rom
dive while booting, you mast copy the install-files to a hfs partition
and boot into the installer via open firmware from harddisk. I Installed
three iBooks this way and it succeeded. perhaps the cd-image i used tu
carry the files to these iBooks helps you, you find it at


it also includes fixed german keybord maps (the ones in woody lack the
ALT-GR mapping, so you can't type @ or ~)
