So, I just acquired an older Dual G5 system running OS X Tiger. It is a much-needed upgrade to my 3+ year-old G4 powerbook. That laptop has treated me really really well, but it just can’t keep up anymore.

So need a linux install. I considered a dual-boot system, but I am not going to be any serious processor-heavy linux work. It is primarily for working with the Gumstix. Anyway, I ran into some installation problems. I found some good solutions here.
