10.5: Install on a PPC Mac from an external USB Drive
Authored by: will11 on Dec 05, '11 01:29:37PM

Dear Users,

I have spent days trying to install leopard and think this guide is extremely good but I have a bit of a problem. on step 9, every time i type in the command "dev / 1s", the mac then replies with "unknown word". I have also tried reversing the slashes and when i type "dev \ 1s" the mac replies with "can't find device \ 1s, unknown word". i have no idea why this is happening and would appreciate help from anyone who wishes to give it.

Thank you.

iMac g5, 1.6GHz, 768mb ram, Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger

I think you're having an l vs 1 (letter vs number) issue.

Good luck!
