    Hi there Guys

    I'm quite, if not very, new to linux so please forgive me lol.

    I'm liking what I see so far just a few things I've had to sort out, most of which google has been great but this problem I can't seam to find an answer.

    I'm running FC5 on a PowerMac G4 and when I preform a reboot either from the command line or from the GUI the mac shuts off and when it re-boots it goes looking for the mac os....:mad:

    FC5 is the only OS on the HD and this is the only HD in the G4?

    I obviously get a flashing question mark (which anyone here that know mac means it cant find the os)

    On a normal boot the boot loader loads FC5 100% a-ok!

    Thanks in advanced

    Don't you get a grub menu which lets you select what you want to boot?

    Hi there

    I get a "First stage Fedora Core Bootstrap" allowing me to boot to open firmware, from cd, from linux etc etc then I get the Yaboot screen.

    From a reboot I dont see either it goes straight to the flashing question mark.

    But it works when you shutdown the computer and then start it again?
    Must be a problem with the BIOS, I guess... :confused:
