Here is our trusty SystemRescueCd booting:
After booting, use fdisk to delete the partition that was created (/dev/sda3 is what ours was), and create a slightly smaller one as well as a roughly 1 GB transfer disk. Create an ext2 filesystem on the large one (sda3 for us) and a VFAT file system on the smaller one. Copy the mcjrootfsmac03.0.tar.bz2 tarball to the smaller VFAT volume and extract it to the larger ext3 filesystem in the root:
After you have done this, enter chroot /nonic /bin/bash (or whatever your mount point is). If you aren’t following along here, than this probably is not a task you should take on. Practice using a VM first. It is the same procedure, basically, but less scary. Note that like the Mac tarball, mcjrootfs-3.0.tar.bz2 can be used within VMWare Fusion. We have used this on version 2.0.4, and it boots fine with a SCSI driver.
