1) Start up from MacOS CD and select another startup HD.
2) Reset PRAM or use key combination to start up from another drive.
3) If it does not work, you should disconnect your CD, place Linux hd on
this place, and connect 60 GB HD to the socket of original factory HD.
B&W G3 do not supports slave ATA devices, I believe, so possibly this
only visible solution (detach CD for some time).
BTW, I will have dual-boot instruction on my web site today evening.
I'm a newbie to this stuff but I thought I'd try a little more with
my mac.I got problems in booting between SuSE 7.0 (Kernel 2.2.18) and
Mac OS 9.1 on a B&W G3 350 Firmware 1.1f4. I installed SuSE Linux,
then I edited the lilo.conf file as said.
But as I restart my Mac, I can't get into Linux, I get a warning in
small letters in my upper left corner of my screen. Open FirmWare,
and it gives me two choices, boot MacOS, or Shutdown. MacOS won't
Now the problem is I got SuSE linux on my original 6 GB harddrive,
but all my mac partitions, except the boot part for SuSE,are on my
60 GB ATA/100 harddisk connected to a Sonnettech Ultra ATA/66 card,
since I can only hook up one harddisk to the motherboard controller
in a rev 1 B&W G3.
I knew you couldn't install SuSE linux on a harddisk connected to an
ATA card, but is there a way to edit the lilo.conf file in a way it
will recognize my 18 GB mac partition on the ATA card?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in Advance,
