I've just finished installing businesscard-powerpc on a Beige G3
(OldWorld) machine.  Worked swimmingly with both the 2.4 and 2.6

The only difficulty I had is that it tried to install quik and failed
because I didn't create any boot partition -- because I prefer to use
MacOS-9 with BootX as my boot loader.  So for me, quik is unnecessary
and undesirable.  I wish there were a more graceful way of telling the
installer that I don't want quik, but allowing it to try and fail does
the job, albeit messily.  It's certainly not worth holding up the
release over.
