you mean "hda=noprobe" ? Is that documented somewhere, I found nothing after
a quick search. noprobe sounds like you switch off IDE, where do you want to
install to when you do not have SCSI? Or what don't I understand here (note:
I am not a mac user)? You do have an IDE disk (not listed)?

Did you try to press the "Return" key on your keyboard? At this stage of the
installation I would be very suprised if your mouse would be working

Did you actually check if your hardware is supported by linux-m68k? I
remember something about PB190 and everything but the keyboard working, but
I may be wrong, things might have changed. I did not find you models noted on
the mac status page, maybe you could ask some mac kernel hackers.

And thats why you reported a bug?
