Default Installing Yellow Dog Linux on OS X

I cannot get the cd to boot at start up. I used nero on my pc to burn the files and am not sure if it has anything to do with that. Do you have to make it a bootable iso? I have an old blueberry iMac 96MB 333MHz.

You can't burn an ISO the regular way that you burn files. You have to select the burn ISO option in your burning software. if not, it won't run.

I know, I read on other forums how to do it and followed every instruction. It boots and I can go through all the other preinstallation ex. formatting hd and selecting packages it freezes once it starts installling!!!

Did you run an md5 checksum on the iso you downloaded?
