Hi, long story short: I'm stuck house-sitting with two computers: A horribly locked-down PC with no rights, and a crummy little iBook that I nabbed from a friend. I'm not going to mess with the person's PC (though I'm tempted) out of respect, so I want to make a little room on the Mac and install Ubuntu.
I'm running 10.3.9, fully updated, and I have root privileges on the machine. I made sure that the firmware didn't have any lockdown, but the computer will not boot up the cd, using C or Option. The disc is read in the OS, and I can browse all the files that should be there. What am I doing wrong?
