I have just installed woody on the same box, but it doesn't seem
stable. I might try installing potato. The kernel keeps panicking when
it tries to swap. You would need an Apple monitor, AFAIK, although a
multisync with a cable adapter might work.  But, then you also need
MacOS in order to boot m68k Linux, so you'd have to download that
(probably 7.5.3) from Apple, or borrow a CD.

Me neither. And I'm fairly green with gdb and such, but maybe I can learn 
something and help you out too. If you want, send me the source or let me know 
where to get it, and I'll give it a go.
