Ahem. Since I've performed a successful install with the Sarge installer
I think (from my point of view) this bug can be closed. In fact, I'd be
inclined to suggest that the reason the F30 isn't working is because the
2.6.8 kernel provided by the installer doesn't support the F30.
I think Sven Luther has 2.6.11 kernel that you might be able to boot from
to see if that works any better (my patches to support more PReP boxes
went in to the 2.6.9 kernel).
I have a (slightly non-working now, sadly) F30 in my garage which I
definitely booted Linux on, so it should be possible.
