Fedora 7 on intel macbook


Hello.

I am trying to install Fedora 7 on an intel Macbook and the install seems to go smoothly but when I reboot it says missing operating system. I would imagine this has something to do with how the mac is trying to boot or where the boot record is however I cannot figure out where to change this. I have run a google search on it and found the boot camp thing from Mac but it only talks about booting into Win xp. I also tried to search here and couldnt find anything. Since the install went and formatted the drive I cant try the bootcamp wihtout reinstalling OSX. If I have to I can do that but I figured I would check here before doing that. Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks a lot. I think this will help...I was hoping to get Fedora on there but I think I am going to try and install the distro that this article is about and see if i can learn from this one enough to get Fedora on. Thanks again.
