After upgrading from ubuntu hoary to debian etch on my machine, I apparently accidentally blew away my grub configuration, so the system couldn't boot. I was trying to find disks to burn a new 6.10 on, but my DVDs won't burn in the macbook, and I don't have any blank CDs... in looking for blank CDs, I did find an ubuntu 5.04 CD though. I'm now running on that. I had forgotten how much I enjoy linux on the desktop. Apple is all well and good, but sometimes I have to fight against it just a bit too much for what I do.
