I have had no luck getting the drive formatted to install Suse 10.3 (I guess 10.4 would have the same results) at my location.

When will this be possible dirctly from SuSE/YAST ?



Can I (As some onew elsed asked) format with Suse 9.3 on a PC then swap it into the Power Mac G3 ?


Can I format it from 9.2 and for mat it like this: ?


Mac boot partition
Root
swap
user



Sorry for the newbe type Bull---t I enjoy Suse on My AMD Box, and would love to get it up and running on the G3.




Any one able to walk me through this step by step ?


I also have Debian (Sarge) for PP, Madrake 10 For PPC and have been able to do paartitions, & instal (Booting is another problem with those systems)

Can I format with them, cancel install, and then instal Suse ?



Michael...
