Mac: iPod mini will not work as bootable drive

Chris Breen, Macworld columnist reports that “if you attempt to install [Mac OS X] from a multi-disc CD set, the mini won’t boot so that you can install from the second disc. If you install from a DVD, the installation goes as planned, but when it comes time to boot, the mini is missing in action—won’t appear in the Mac’s startup screen when you hold down the Option key.”
