What is to do when I want to run Debian 4.0 on the new Apple Macintosh
machines with Intel processors, especially the Xserve Server machine?
Does Debian for PowerPC work, or Debian for i386, or none?
AFAIK the new intel based macs are just standard intel PCs except for a drm
chips that is supposed to allow OsX to install only on "licensed" PCs.
Considering OsX for them has been hacked to install on any old PC I guess
it should also work the other way around, which means i386.
If none, will Debian be ported to that architecture?
Will it be possible to make a dual boot installation (OS X / Debian) on
such a machine?
If it installs properly, then my guess is you should be able to install
grub which should be able to boot osX (you may need to hack to variables).
Maybe the mac program to dual boot windows will also work here.
See http://refit.sourceforge.net/ I have a friend running OS X, Ubuntu, and
Win XP all on his Mac laptop, and all three work well.
