ADB is Apple Desktop Bus. This is used to connect keyboard and mouse to these
older Mac's.
Powerbook ADB doesn't work with 2.2.x kernels. Only 2.4.x and then again still
troublesome: sometimes, on some machines it'll stop working and some machines
will interpret this as a sign to switch off to preserve the battery. See the
linux-mac68k maillist for more details (linux-mac68k@mac.linux-m68k.org).
