use Debian testing with XFCE on an old bookmac

as I am now happy with XFCE on my old laptop, I would be interesting to add it on the old bookmac from my wife without she loose her mac OS.

if I have somewhat to do on her bookmac, I introduce a PuppyLinux-CD in the CD-drive and start PuppyLinux ;-) !

as also PuppyLinux-CD's start with grub PC as all auto booting CD's and use so grub PC to start, I suppose that also a bookmac would be able to use a autoboot-CD with an extended boot menu (as usual on hard disks on usual book-PC's or laptop's?

so no special (apple word) software to install on the macbook, only change the size of one big partition on the macbook, add a new ext4 partition for Debian testing and start after restart (in other cases my wife does never restart! she always only close the top lap! no restart month along...) my Debian through the CD awaiting in the CD drive!

is that possible?

It is possible, and detailed in the Debian wiki: https://wiki.debian.org/MacBook
