> I just tried the 11-April-2004 ppc boot.img and it seems that it does not work. I get Tux sitting by a Mac, the floppy gets ejected but there are no on screen prompts as with the old installer. I can insert the root disc and it seems to read it but finishes a short while later with nothing else happening. I have to eject the disc manually. This sounds like what has already been described by others. Is there a working image to be found?
