Re: instalation on a tricky 7500/100 with metabox G4

I'm pretty sure you can't use quik or yaboot to boot a 7500. You will need a partition with a Mac OS 8 or 9 installation so you initially start up in Mac OS, and then switch to Linux with BootX.

If you can tolerate this, the happy news is that it really works fine, I have an 8500 that I'm very attached to, that worked quite poorly when I got OS X installed on it, but that works great with Linux.
