Ubuntu on a G3 iMac

Mauro K.
So how does it work (in speed) compared to OS X Tiger, which i am
currently using? I have a iMac DV SE 400MHz with 512 MB RAM.

Also, I have two drives, an external 120GB Firewire one I use with
Tiger and the internal 13GB one that I intend to install kubuntu, will
ubuntu recognize the media files and etc on my HFS+ file system on the
Mac system drive?

BTW anyone also had problems on yaboot installation?

Thanks a lot!

It will fly in comparison. Really. But probably a bit less so than it
would compared with Tiger running off the internal drive (Coz those
drives are a tad slow). My iMac is a 350 MHz Grape with 256MB ram,
Ubuntu runs just dandy.

Apple partition maps and HFS/HFS+ are supported. Writing to them *can*
mess up your disk to the point of needing DiskWarrior, though.

Mine worked fine :-)
