Excerpt from the page:
"These instructions should apply to any model of iBook, but they have
only been tested by the author on a 2001 iBook Dual USB"
I used the instructions for a PowerBook G4 (867 MHz), with Mac OS X
already on the very last partition of the disk -- I left the very
first part of the hard disk free for Debian ... and it worked out of
the box for me (and at this time I didn't have nearly the slightest
idea of how Debian works; I had used RedHat Linux about 2 years before
I definitely can't say whether this page will help you, as I don't
know your machine: If in doubt: Please don't use it...
But the instructions there might give you an idea perhaps of what it's
I'd back up everything I have on a disk before partitioning it ..
I Cc this to you as I have never told you that your page
http://people.debian.org/~branden/ibook/ worked for me, too ...
Thanks for it ..
