We tried booting with every version of CD, v3.0, v3.1 and testing, but failed to boot.
When we enter "boot cdron:,\install\yaboot" on OF, we just got "OK" prompt on OF.
We are using IBM RS6000 7043-B50, CHRP.
We tried with floppy of rescue.bin, there was a loop. And I heard it was a bug, so it was obsoleted by CD-ROM.
