Ok, so, do you have any roadmap for adding floppy support to quick ? And will
quick allow to get cdrom support on oldworld machines ?

Code exists. Needs debugging though (read: it doesn't work).
quik should be able to get cdrom support on oldworld (modulo OF bugs).

I agree that quick seems the worthier solution compared to miboot, but i
haven't looked at the code of both.

It should even be possible to make a unified loader which replaces both
yaboot and quik.

I'm willing to help with testing/debugging either or both of these two projects (floppy quik and merged bootloader) on my testing Beige G3 (I can also get occasional access to a few other types of old Macs, if that would be helpful).

Please keep me in the loop.
