10.5: Install on a PPC Mac from an external USB Drive
Authored by: sbloch on Jan 17, '12 10:36:35AM

Seems to be working for me now: the 10.5 installer is running on my G4 tower. I set up a USB drive with nothing on it but the 10.5 ISO, so there were no partitions, so I needed "ud:,\System\Library\..."

I thought there might be a simpler way, considering that I already had 10.4 running -- some way to say "next time, boot from the USB drive" -- but I haven't found such a way.

In the meantime, I've learned about the existence of Open Firmware, started reading about it, and learned that it's a domain-specific dialect of Forth (who knew?!)
