P.S. The only problem in the install is that the modules won't install, you 
have to skip forward to the next parts then you have manually go to each step.

I will work on getting a kernel that boots with the correct support for bogl 
that uses the same kernel as the distribution. but these instrunctions should 
be enough for someone to get there system installed then they have to use the 
boot disk and change root=/dev/fd0 load_ramdisk=1 to root=/dev/sdax x being 
there install partition. rebuild and install the kernel using Ingvar Hagelund 
fag for LinuxPPC-2000 Q4.  If you need help with a howto for these beasts let 
me know
