I have a Mac iBook G4, which is not booting at all and it requires 'OS X Recovery CD', which i do not have. So I wanted to install Ubuntu on, which I already use on another system.

  • A step by step guide, for burning the .iso image, or a bootable USB version guide for Ubuntu 13.10 for my iBook is highly appreciated.

Try Ubuntu before you install it

If you’re not yet sure about installing Ubuntu, you can try it out without affecting your current system.

You can try Ubuntu without actually installing it on your computer’s hard drive. You can do this by starting up your computer with either an Ubuntu DVD in the drive or a USB stick with Ubuntu on it in a USB port.
