    iMac Installation - How to Boot LiveCD?

    Hey guys. I want to upgrade from 8.10 to 9.10 on this iMac (Intel Core Duo 20", 2.0ghz, 2gb RAM, ATI X1600), but I can't get the LiveCD to boot. I tried imaging to a USB drive, but iMac can't boot from USB, so I put it on a FireWire external. It's recognized, but when I try to boot from it, it just boots from my internal HD. Is there any way I can create an image on my internal HD, and use Grub to boot that? Or reboot in a way that forces my computer to boot from the external HD?

    Ideally, I want to boot from /dev/sdb1, which is an image of the LiveCD.

    Woops, should be tagged "[ubuntu]"
