I still can't get X to run on my beige g3. yes i have partitioned my drive correctly. I have two IDE drives. One is a master on it's own bus (it's where the original apple-supplied drive was) and the second is on the CD's bus (I believe the CD is master, so the HD must be slave). I formatted the drive so that one 6gb partition was completely within the first 8gb of the drive, just like it's supposed to be. I have 384 mb of ram. Anyone know what is going on? I can install X just fine but when I restart after the install (by clicking the Restart button in the X installer) it just sits there after the startup "bwooaaahh" and doesn't even get to a happy (or sad) mac or blinking ? mark.
