running Ubuntu from a live CD
Hi; I'm pretty new at all this, but I've downloaded the PPC version of Ubuntu on a live CD and have it installed on an old G3 iBook. It runs, but boy is it slow! I'm wondering if I install the regular Ubuntu OS (not from the live CD) if it will speed up any. I kind of hate to lose my Mac OS, and was hoping to be able to do it this way. My CD drive makes kind of creaky noises when it looks for stuff on the Ubuntu CD. Is this normal? If the drive is not working well, it looks to me as if the thing wouldn't run at all. Can anyone advise me? Should I just scrap the Mac OS and download the thing permanently? Is Ubuntu really, really slow always?
