Ok, i will test on both the powerstack II and the IBM 43P-140 i have here. My
guess is that it may work on the IBM PReP and not on the powerstack, from
older experiments. I think Attilio has the same IBM PReP box.

How this works on other PReP systems, like the Bull Estrella, is anyone's
guess, and as said, it will not work on Motorola PowerStack I (the hifi like
boxed powerstack we played with in oldenbourg two years ago), since it needs
the ppcbug zImage, which is not currently supported by mkvmlinuz.
