I'm using Finn Thain's 2.6.22 kernel from
http://www.telegraphics.com.au/~fthain/jcewy/. I've tried the nativehd
install ramdisk image from Sarge and also the one at
arguments I'm passing to the kernel in Penguin are: mac53c9x=1,0
With both ramdisks I get to a point where it seems to hang at "(process:

Is there a text mode installer available? Your description seems like you
try to use the 'graphical' installer which is just fancier console display
with UTF-8 (multibyte character display) support. Whatever is used to
display UTF-8 does not work with Mac framebuffer display, I suppose. What
is your display color depth?
Stephen sure tested the installer on another m68k platform, maybe it only
works with 8 bit display?
