Just a thot:
my OS is U-606.1
Generally, most subsequent OSs are crud. Forget even the x64 month-later version of this one.
Is Ubuntu sold-out to "Drown 'em in bug-crud till they suck some other devel-base dry" or what?
I would really like to load up U-10.04 and find that everything that worked 5 years ago now magically works again, along with everything else that the normal world came up with since then. Please don't kick me for being radical. heh....

If you insert the Mac OSX (Leopard) Install DVD; the only thing you see is the WindowsSupport part of the DVD. If you want to access the OSX Install content of the DVD you need some extra tools.
  • download & install multipath-tools
    In a terminal as root
    • tar -xjf multipath-tools-0.4.8.tar.bz2
    • cd multipath-tools-0.4.8
    • make && make install
  • Map the dvd to a loop-device
    losetup /dev/loop0 /dev/sr0 (/dev/sr0
