    Exclamation Restore Partition to make it Mac Readable

    Hello! I have this situation. I have an ibook G3 500 mhz with 600+ MB of RAM and now I want to get rid of my Kubuntu partition. I have now installed Kubuntu 10.04. I've been using Kubuntu on my ibook for a long time, but due to kubuntu being soooo heavy on this old machine, I want to erase it and make that partition Mac OS X usable.

    I don't have a DVD drive so I cannot use the Mac Installer nor the cd's What can I do?

    I don't know which version of OS X your using, but in the Applications folder there should be a Utilities folder. There you can find the Disk Utility which lets you delete, create and format partitions.

    I see the disk utility but it says that disk is not mounted and can't format it. Any ideas?

    Could you use a live ubuntu cd to do your partitioning?

    But, why don't you install 11.04/11.10 lubuntu or xubuntu? If you say there are no powerpc versions i am going to scream! (please look at the sticky thread for instructions)
