As I've said before, if you can afford the disk space (big IDE

robust and flexible is MacOS with BootX.

Ok, could you send me the MacOS installation CD? I don't have one and
mac os is no longer installed.

Hmm I should have said this in a more friendly way.

Would the following procedure work:
- boot using the boot floppies
- load the necessairy modules using disk images / net
- mount /target
- chroot /target and run quik
- reboot

It might work. It's certainly worth a try. Please report back to the list with your results!

After the install, the system booted normally once. After that I zapped
the pram to get rid of the long lasting black screen, hoping I would be
able to enter some boot parameters (didn't work of course, but it made
the system unbootable).

Yeah. quik diddles the Open Firmware parameters. Zapping the PRAM resets the diddles to default.
