What is the command to run Ubuntu 10.10 from the cd, and NOT install it to the hard-drive?
P.S. The command "live" does not work

You need to have your bios set to boot from the CDrom first. Put your CD in and reboot. You will get a menu that give you 2 choices;
If you have trouble booting the CD reboot and when the first purple screen comes up hit any key and this will take you to a more complete menu.

Just so know, this Ubuntu is for PPC mac. When I hold down the "C" key and boot from the cd, i get this promt: "boot: ". The only command that I know of is "install". what is the command to run the OS of the cd, and not install it to the hard-drive.
P.S. the command "live" does no work.

If you give it time, it should just continue on to the desktop. On my blueberry imac running Karmic it took about 20 minutes to get to the desktop using the Live CD. Once installed, it takes less than a minute.
