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

I just had an interesting conversation with an Apple developer (Apple employee) regarding the legal status of the boot sector for oldworld Macs.

He pointed out that Darwin runs (and boots) on (at least) the beige G3, and that's oldworld. I don't know anything about Darwin except that it's from Apple, it runs on PowerMacs, and it's open source, but he (and now I) wondered if the open source boot code for Darwin would do what we're looking for.

Just a thought?
