The 2004-10-26 snapshot CD image, as well as a previous beta4 version,
fail to boot on an Apple PowerMac G5 dual 1.8 GHz when using the
command line "install-power4 video=ofonly".  The last message
displayed is "openpic2: exit"; the system then hangs.  I do not know
of a workaround that will allow installation on this machine.
