I'm pretty sure 2.4.20 isn't going to work on a Mac.  m68k Mac seems to
be stalled at the 2.2 level.  I had 2.4.1 working (poorly) on a IIfx,
but have never made much progress beyond that.  I believe a few 68k
PowerBook users have had minor success with early versions of 2.4.  I'm
working with the NuBus PPC 2.4.21 code in an effort to see if I can get
a Performa 636 to boot.  The Performa 636 and the Performa 6200 are
almost identical hardware with the exception of the processor.  Once I
have the 636 it may be easier to fix the other broken bits that keep
m68k Macs from running a 2.4.x kernel.
