"You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume. You cannot start your computer from this volume."

The hard drive in my old Powerbook G3 is dying, so I decided to replace it. Since I'm in the process of replacing it, I thought I'd go ahead and put 10.3 on it, and that was the error I got when I tried installing it on the new disk, after several formats. A search on google returned zero results.

Well, rebooting fixed it. I was thinking for a minute Apple had some bizarre restriction on what kind of hard drives you can install OS X on. :-)
