I have a PowerBook G4 12 1,5 Ghz (http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powerbook_g4/stats/powerbook_g4_1.5_12.html
) in witch I wish to install MintPPC 9.3 in dual-boot with Mac OS X. After disabling the journalization of the mac partition, I'm planing to resize it with parted and then creating the Linux partitions with the mintppc installer in the free space created. However, I'm looking for a "live" CD witch contains GNU parted...
So, is it possible to use the Debian/mintppc installer for parted and then the installer partitions tools, or should I use a live CD like Ubuntu's for parted?
When resizing the Mac partition, the space for the Linux partitions must be after the Mac OS X partitions or before (after bootstrap partition of course)? How much the space for the Linux partitions should be?
Also, my PowerBook's CD-Room drive has passed away and I am not sure if booting with the "C" key from an external CD drive USB still works. I found here:http://www.jacsoft.co.nz/Tech_Notes/Mac_Keys.shtml#Command-Shift-Option-Delete
that in this case, Command-Shift-Option-Delete works but I am not sure...
Thanks for your replies
