Tri-booting Ubuntu Linux, Yellowdog Linux and Mac OS X, all on one PowerBook?

Even better: if you’ve an older Mac that doesn’t have the oomph to run Panther and, soon, Tiger, then turning it into a Linux-based server could be a terrific alternative.

cool.. will it work on my new macbook pro? lol – not that i’d stick with it – just curious.

Well you could do 2 distros of Linux, but not Yellow Dog Linux, it is PPC only. Ubuntu and Fedora would be good choices however, and I would recommend keeping it on, as they are fun to play with.

Ima go with Ubuntu. I love it. Used it as my first distro on my Macbook, and Yellow Dog seems weird to me. Oh well, tha’s just me.
