I just got a 40 Gig hard drive for my iBook clamshell 366, here is the problem; I purchased OS X 10.3 on DVD ( Ok, my head was elsewhere at the time...) my clamshell doesn't have a super drive. I have been all over the net and have read some places that you can boot from an external USB drive. I have also read several places that you cant. With out Fire wire I was going to use my external USB drive. I have an old 20 Gig Hd that I formatted for boot and copied the dvd to, with my G5. any one have experience with this? Can it be done? If so what keyboard commands do I use? (Command U?)
