Boot PowerPC Macs via USB 2.0 drives
Authored by: dancriel on Feb 07, '08 11:08:28PM

Don't forget that to go back to booting from your internal drive, follow the same steps but type setenv boot-device hd:,\\:tbxi in step 6 instead.

This worked in 10.5.1 on my iMac G5 ALS using a USB 2.0 drive with a partition that holds a clone of my main startup drive (the internal drive) made using rsync and the magical "bless" command instead of SuperDuper! or Carbon Copy Cloner
