I've found guides that explain how to make a bootable disk for macs using macs, but I want to use ubuntu to make this mac-bootable disk. Is there a way to do that?

In other words, I have:

  • a laptop that runs only ubuntu
  • a 4GB usb thumb drive
  • a Mac Mini 5,1 with non-working OSX Lion

and I'd like to install ubuntu on the Mac Mini.

I tried following the instructions here: http://studyblast.wordpress.com/2011/08/14/guide-mac-os-x-lion-how-to-boot-a-linux-live-system-from-a-usb-drive-how-to-update-any-ocz-ssds-firmware/

but the mediafire download that this guide requires is no longer available, and I can't find it anywhere else. So that's out.
