Ooops! Maybe I just slipped in over my head. I'm rather new to floppy 
installs on OldWorld PPCs. BootX has done this part for me until now.

Would this argument be passed at the Open Firmware prompt? That's the 
only method I could think of, given my inexperience.

If not, can someone give a me little kernel-args-to-boot-floppy howto? 

Does it exist somewhere else? I'll look.
