Bug#156710: BOOT error on new install to Mac Performa 6360 PowerPC

I have visited the netBSD site, and that has lead me
to use the settings below (after running the firmware
commands you listed).

The boot-device setting has me confused - it is an IDE
drive, but most examples are SCSI. I noticed the line 
FF83A798:       /ATA-Disk@0,0
and tried changing boot-device to  
0> setenv boot-device ata/ATA-Disk@0:0
but that still returns a "CLAIM failed" error.

As for the weak OF, I did read that it may need
patching, but with only 1.2g, there is no MacOS
available. I read further that someone can send a text
version of the patch and it can be placed in with an
editor - I'm not sure I'm up to that... is there any
method from within Linux (if/when I ever get there) to
update the firmware?

Thanks for the speedy response,
