So. Just getting started with Linux, and I thought Ubuntu was a good place. So I burned an install DVD (internal drive wouldn't work, external drive did). I tried booting it and got the same result in both drives: I clicked "Try Ubuntu" (as opposed to Install), aand it did nothing. Got the Ubuntu wheel of death.
So, I tried making a bootable usb stick with diskutil and conversions from .iso to .img, etc. Apparently my comp can only boot Mac OS X from USB tho.
So. Any suggestions?
