Re: Please Help Test debian-installer rc1 on m68k

hi all

The Installation manual (sect 5.1) describes booting from macos, but
unless you rtfm completely, I could imagine a newbie thinking it is
possible to boot from a cd (there is a sentence that explains the only
machine to boot from cd is a BVME6000 - whatever that is:) I think it
might be clearer to explicitly state that you can ONLY boot from penguin

There is no Penguin booter on the cd
nor can i find a kernel image. There are 3 files in the install/
