Problems with Sarge netinst and Yaboot
Hi, I've just bought a PowerBook G4 12".
I have downloaded the Beta1 of Sarge NetInst for PowerPC (November 9th)
and I have got a problem at the beginning of the installation.
I enter Open Firmware, and then boot with:

Enter "help" to get some basic usage information

:0,/vmlinux: Unable to open file, Invalid device
The ISO image is correct (I have checked the MD5sum) and I've burned it a

After trying some things (it was the first time I used yaboot) I've got it

VFS: Cannot open root device "" or 16:01
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 16:01
<0>Rebooting in 180 seconds..

cramfs: wrong magic
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 01:00
I've tried several combinations of these options without any good result.
Thanks for your help (please, keep me in CC because I'm not subscribed to
