10.4: Boot Intel Macs from iPods and FireWire drives
Authored by: AndyTim on Aug 17, '06 03:57:07PM

Are you talking about some special technique involving Open Firmware? As I understand it, when trying to boot many Macs to a bootable iPod partition like this:
0 > boot usb0/device/disk:3,\\:tbxi
Or anything similar, we get a RESET-PORT or something like... A timeout? Can you supply the information you mentioned about booting some PPC Macs please?
Thanks.
