Good to hear. I don't have a PPC machine handy to help with that,

However you see fit :-) When I post my plan for the reorganization
(which I discussed in my reply to Franz) you'll know more of what I'm
thinking. We can discuss it more then. 

One thing we'll have to work out is a framework for dealing with
arch-specific stuff. I don't know a ton about docbook yet, so perhaps
there's a convenient mechanism that we can use to take advantage of,
such as providing a question like "Which bootloader am I using?"
followed by an arch-specific answer, where each arch-specific answer is
encoded in the original XML source. We'll have to see. Hopefully we can
work together on coming up with some way of dealing with this issue.
