[TriLUG] Burning MAC dmg's under Linux (now OT)

Thanks for the help. Neither method worked however. The hdiutil
command produced a file with a 'cdr' extension. I burned it and got the
same errors. I then tried dd'ing the device file while the dmg image was
mounted. I got an error about the device being in use.
I think I'm just screwed. The reason I'm going through this is that I
installed Panther and it doesn't like my video card. The video is almost
undecipherable. I am trying to burn some dmg images of Jaguar I got from
a friend to do a re-install. I bought the machine used with Jaguar
installed, but no cds.
Is it possible to do an install from the mounted dmg images? I have a
feeling it is not.
