    Same tink as in other topic :>

    iPod is not desktop computer, it hardware won't handle modern linux desktop software (xbox Linux is one of them).

    You can only dream for linux mobile device software, such as Rockbox or this mobile Ubuntu thing (forgot a name) or Android.

    He wants to use his Xbox to install Linux, since he can't install Linux (For some reason, which I Highly doubt) on his own computer.

    i have a powerbook g4, i tried booting from 2 different live cds and i can never get it to boot up. i always just get a message that says "cannot allocate memory" or something like that.

    Did you download the PPC versions of those Linux distros? I suggest you try using Ubuntu's PPC Version and try booting that up if you haven't.

    You'll need an earlier version, I'm afraid. Version 7.10, Gutsy Gibbon, should work for you.
