Re: [mkoz@umich.edu: Debian PPC disks]

This begs a question - what's the status of the Debian-ppc boot-floppies? Do 
they work now? Because if not, I don't think we want these people 
demonstrating the half-install LinuxPPC, untar base, write /etc/init.d/network 
yourself, reboot, hit lots of snages trying to get apt to work (needs perl, 
perl's not in the base) install that I had. I love this dist now that it's up, 
but it's not installfest-ready unless that has changed...

I assume you've also talked to LinuxPPC (www.linuxppc.com) and YellowDog 
(yellowdoglinux.com)? Just 'cause we like alternatives... They are all
