Re: Help with Core 4 install off-list



Sigh...

Yes, it says i386 on the CD...

So should I download the iso file for ppc and then burn to CD?

When you boot to CD does the install start right away or will I need to hit
Return? I'm thinking I should probably do a GUI rather than text install.

Any idea what the name of the PPC image file is?
