Re: Debian-installer, older hardware, boot loaders, miboot & amiboot & ..

I'm sorry. I don't have the skills in assembler language to help with this phase. However, I'll happily test things on my farm of old Macs of various flavors.

For what it's worth, since MacOS7.6 and (I think) 8.6 boot on M68k Macs, the boot sector is very likely to be in M68k machine language, not PowerPC.

Hope that helps!
