Comprend pas. Le ofonly c'est pour oldworld pmac seulement, je suis pas
sur que ce soit une bonne idee de l'utiliser sur ta machine.
Err, you also CCed debian-powerpc, so i go back to english. the floppy
stuff is mostly for oldworld pmacs and miboot. you need the
/powerpc/netboot/vmlinuz-prep.initrd, or if you can boot from cdrom,
this would be even easier.
