Re: PowerPC Kernel installs

der.hans was said to been seen saying:

	Yes... the system has 3 partitions on a SCSI harddrive... sda1 is
the ext2 / partitions, sda2 is the Type 41 PPC PReP Boot partition and
sda3 is the swap... do I have to dd the kernel to the PReP boot partition?
This was actually done for me during the install through the boot disks I
grab'd off www.debian.org for PReP... The kernels I have been attempting
to install are the kernel-image-2.2.{12,13}-prep which want to run quik
to make the system bootable...

	Only reason I mention'd quik was that the kernel-image packages
have both tried to use it to make the system bootable...

	Yes that is the install instructions I followed when I first did
the install and it made the system bootable from the harddrive... Since
then I have not been able to reproduce whatever it did to make the system
boot the kernel... Even though I"ve install'd new kernels on the system it
still has yet to boot one of them...
