It would be nice if you could provide step-by-step instructions on how to
get a working system, I gave up after I could not get nfsroot to work.
Last weekend I played with the Efika board, it took me a while to figure out
that I need a different grafics board to actually boot the machine, too bad.
Progress is slow, but if you don't have to repeat all the mistakes others
did, things could go a little faster. I'd really love to have the m68k cross
gcc run on the powerpc board, not sure if this speeds up anything though.
