So I've got everything more or less installed the way I want it. I want to now create an image of the drive in case I have to wipe it one day. Since there's no firewire, and hence, no target disk mode, I figured I'd boot up into the leopard disk and use disk utility.
However, no matter what I do, I can't get the mini9 to boot from a CD. I put in the Type11 boot disk, hit 0 and select CDRom as the boot drive, and when I hit enter, it instantly brings up the darwin boot loader from my hard drive, every time. Is there a way to tell it to boot from a CD (i.e. my leopard disk) at that stage?
