    Hey guys

    just purchased a ibook g3 here, it has jaguar on it looking to install tiger on it, but i put in the tiger disk and then it asks me to reboot to continue.

    when i reboot it then logs straight back into jaguar...

    it doesnt even load up the installer.

    any ideas?

    if holding down C doesn't help, .. try hold down alt on reboot. you will be presented with all possible startup disk options. select the dvd and continue

    What model iBook - Clamshell or dual USB (snow) model? OS X 10.4 is supported on machines with firewire - this includes Clamshells with FW port, or any dual USB iBook. If not, you can use a third party utility such as XPostfacto to install 10.4 onto "unsupported" machines.
