I am a newbie on this list; my original assumption was that since
is to widely distribute fedora based on LiveCDs, there could be a
person on the list
that owns a Mac and maybe could help me, or give a hint, on the
reason why the
CD I created (actually burn from an iso image) was not seen as
bootable by MacOSX.
Could you let met know if this is the correct place to ask this kind
of question or recommend
a better place ? Or wait until mac owners are back from vacation ;-)

I am new to this mailing list. I may have a question that may seem
very basic for you.
I am having trouble on my PowerBook G4 Mac to burn a mac bootable
CD for Fedora.
I downloaded the CDs from the site and the sha1sum program from:
I checked my download was OK:
sha1sum -c SHA1SUM.txt
Then I checked my cdrecord program was working fine by burning a
copy of my original
disktool -u disk2s2 ; cdrecord dev=IODVDServices
driveropts=burnfree -sao speed=4 disk2.cdr
Track 02: Total bytes read/written: 2960891904/2960891904 (1445748
Using system preference the disk shows as bootable, and I also try
to boot (holding the 'C' key)
on my PowerBook G4 which worked fine.
Then I burned the disk FC-5-ppc-disc1.iso using the same command.
The cdrecord burning
process worked fine but the disk is not bootable. neither does
"system preferences" sees it
Could you please point me to the correct site, maillist or person
that went through this process
and is sure that this particular iso on the site is actually
bootable on macs.
Thank you for your help.
