As soon as I got a Mac Pro I desired to install Linux onto it. At first, I worked with Virtualbox and while that was a pretty god experience and I love that program, I was wasn’t satisfied with that.
What I wanted was to actually install Linux onto the hard drive. I own the Mac Pro 1.1 that came out in 2006 and it came with a 250 GB hard drive, so I would rather leave Mac OS on that Hard drive and install Linux on a larger one.
In fact, a much larger one, and I am thinking about multibooting it with Windows.
The reason I want to do that is that I want to be able to use programs that are not cross-platform with that huge 30 inch cinema display that I have. For example I already own several copies of Sim City 4 Deluxe so I want to play that on this machine.
I may even get a separate hard drive for each OS. Who knows what I am going to end up doing LOL!!
In the next part I will actually try to load up a Live DVD and see how that goes and then I will hopefully be able to fully install Linux Mint 13.
