Hi, My name is Preston, and this is my first undertaking of installing Linux. I am having problems getting my G4 to read the Install Disk. I downloaded 8.04 Minimum Install for 64-Bit Power PCs. The installer program worked fine on My g5 I just Typed "cli" and it wen directly to the installer program, prompting me to selct language etc. My G4 is being a little bit more of a pain. I type in "cli" and then get prompted to OpenFirmware. I then Type "boot cd:,\\:tbxi" It then Changes to a white screen with black text and then said the following:


Loading ELF


CLAIM FAILED



Any ideas anyone? Did I download the wrong version I thought all of G4s and G5s were 64-bit....
