"out of scan range" error when attempting to install etch on mac mini (ppc)
Hi, all -
I'm trying to install Etch on a mac mini (ppc, not x86) that I "inherited"; it currently has OS X on it. I've got the Debian DVDs and can boot off of them, no problem (I hold down "C" while booting which causes the mini to boot from the CD/DVD instead of the hard drive). Machine works; the reason for the change-over is that I like Linux a lot better than I do OS X.
I get a blurb of text that pretty much directs me to type "install" or "expert". The problem is that, whenever I do so, every monitor I've hooked up to the unit reports "out of scan range".
I'm guessing that I need to pass hsync / vsync to the kernel, somehow; can anyone tell me if that's correct, or if there's something else I need to do? My background is RedHat/Fedora on primarily x86 hardware, so I'm more than a little in the dark here.
