Thanks for your excellent article with nice and easy to follow instructions.
Is it possible to install linux mint or ubuntu on mac pc 10.3.9 panther?
I am not able to find it on interent. I am looking for a step by step instruction for that as your step by step approach here. I am wondering whether this is possible in first place.
Please give me the link from other sources if you come across.

I've used Report and although its great, I've had better luck with WheresTheFreeSpace. It is Modeled after a PC application that is very popular called Treesize (but its for Mac).

Sure. You can either install it under Boot Camp instead of Windows, or install it directly if the distro you want supports EFI (most do). The hardest part will probably be getting wireless working.

I was wondering if I can install Ubuntu Linux using this method. It would be really great if I can install ubuntu on my MBP.

How about using an external hard drive for a UNIX system, I have a 500gb that I could use.

Is the installation procedure the same for a MacBookPro with a dual boot Windows XP/Mac bootcamp boot?

Very good tutorial. The main reason I wan't linux is for the cool compiz fusion effects. Unfortunately I'm not ready to leave OS X. Does anyone know an application like compiz for the mac?
