Prep support is missing in 2.6.16 and 2.6.17 debian kernels. It is present in
2.6.18 kernels, with the -prep flavour, thanks to the work i did. I have not
had time to test them, so feedback on this would be welcome, but at least they

Please try the weekly cd builds (altough i never did manage to boot from cd),
or better yet the netboot daily builds :


You do have a powerstack II (in a beige housing) or a powerstack I (in a hifi
radio like black housing) ? 

Also, note that you will need the -prep flavour, and no more the powerpc
flavour, since prep did not yet migrate to ARCH=powerpc (together with apus,
who is also disabled).
