How to make Xubuntu detect and mount CD-ROM on iBook G3?
I've overwritten my out-dated OS X Panther on my iBook G3 PPC (RAM: 128mb Processor: 600MHz) with the Arch Linux Install CD, then that stopped working, so now I'm trying XuBuntu 8.10.
While I was installing Xubuntu, it automatically stopped detecting the CD-ROM, in which the Xubuntu install-CD is spinning. Please tell me how any of you would solve this problem?
After choosing Language, Country and Keyboard-Layout, the Installer tries to detect the CD-ROM, but you get following massage:
"No common CD-ROM drive was detected
You may need to load additional CD-ROM drivers from a floppy... Otherwise you willl be give the option to manually select CD-ROM modules. Load drivers from Floppy? - Yes - No"
I immediately answered 'No' to the previous question.
Should I use the latest-version of Debian or Yellow Dog Linux, instead of Xubuntu because it's still not detecting the CD-ROM even though the Xubuntu 8.10 Install-disk is in the CD-ROM drive?
