    Question iATKOS v7 installation on x40 from usb hdd

    Hello,

    i want to install iATKOS v7 on my x40 (just for testing, doesn't need to be perfect). Since i don't have an external DVD drive or another mac, i'm trying to boot the iso from my usb hdd.

    My setup:
    T61 with Ubuntu (but not for long brrr, then arch i think) and DVD drive
    X40 (currently arch linux is installed)
    USB hdd

    So what's the way a beginner should go?
    I tried to dd the iso to the USB drive (dd if=iatkos.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=512 also with skip=63) under ubuntu. After making the HFS+ partition bootable (gparted) the USB drive was recognized by my X40 but it only jumps to Grub, which i installed with arch linux. I also tried with Chameleon, but i got only a blinking cursor. I don't need dual boot anyways. I spent days with google but i coudn't find something that works for me, most howtos were for users, that have a Mac and 'diskutils' available.

    So what's the way a beginner should go?

    Thank you in advance,

    3mj

    PS: I'm sorry for my bad english.

    *UPDATE* I got Chameleon. No i need to know how to boot from a different usb drive!
