My mac is really old. The hardware sucks, but so does the software. I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit PowerPC on it, but whenever I try to boot to the live DVD, by either holding C' or Option/Alt', nothing happens, and it boots up as normal. By holding Option/Alt, I used to get a boot screen, but I don't get that now, when I started trying this DVD.
How do I boot to a DVD? It's not working! This is infuriating.
