No idea, i on no radeon boards :(

Someone else ?

I might have a NewWorld Mac with a radeon board... If so, it's at work, so checking will have to wait til Monday. I'll let you know.

Not sure if we ever had a success with g-i on oldworld, so it is less
important, and my prep box has a sis and a matrox, but g-i is too big to boot on it. I do have a spare matox millenium i could plug in the pegasos, and just got a xgi volari v3xt. Will test with them. nvidia is evil and should be
boycotted anyway :)

If you have a kernel that will boot using BootX on an OldWorld beige G3 PowerMac, I can give it a try.

Is there an iso I can burn with the necessary stuff on it? I'm not set up to do netbooting at this moment.
