    I found (and bought) a PowerBook G4 (PowerBook 5,8) model at 1.67GHz with 1,5GB RAM and 120GB HD complete in box in order to run MorphOS at least, as the possibility to see an AmigaOS laptop is very rare now.

    Although, my first idea was to install MorphOS only, I decided to install MorphOS but keep MacOS X as well.

    I found a dual-boot guide on the internet (for MacMini), will this do the job for me?

    I have used the same information to set up dual boot PowerMacs.

    Its pretty much applicable to anything we use.

    In fact Kronos pointed out to me that with slight modifications it makes a great way to start booting on an ATA drive and then switch over to an unflashed PC SATA controller to finish.

    That has to be one of my most referenced documents.

    If I may ask, how much did it cost you the purchase of the PBook? Was it in mint condition, battery ok etc? I am toying with the idea of trading the PMac over a PBook (mainly for reasons of portability and space) and I would know how much more would I pay for that.
