Bronze keyboard G3 Powerbooks (Lombard) do not work with yaboot.  There is
some kind of initialization issue with the framebuffer that hasn't been
resolved.  Even though I don't like it, I'm stuck using BootX on my
powerbook.  I hope this problem will be discovered, someday, though.

I do agree that BootX is an annoying way to normally boot Linux.  It just
looks strange to have the machine boot up and identify itself as MacOS, and
then go into Linux.
