Yup, found it. Supposedly when you click on the save button it updates your
OpenFirmware. Only the shadow really knows I guess. Anyway I tried that,
didn't seem to make a difference. I am booting in right now via BootX 1.2.2.
I tried setting the load-base this morning to 4000, 60000, 100000, 1000000 as
suggested by the quik folks. But I'm still using BootX.
Some more information in case anyone else has any ideas...
