Ah. I tried using a floppy ramdisk with the regular image, and it did
load it up. But Sven's image still didn't work. It prompts for the
floppy disk, but doesn't continue after I press Enter. I seem to
remember a similar problem cropping up with 2.2.17, when powerpc was a
young'n. Maybe something to do with the adb keyboard?
