what do we lose? I don't know, I don't even know what the BootX text
is! :)

Oh, and...

cmd-opt-o-f worked. I'm now inside Open Firmware, 2.0.1: here's some
output (maybe I did something wrong in quik.conf... ?)
(my root partition is /dev/hda5)

Type l, off, d
boot: l

Fatal error: Unable to open filesystem

Image not found... try again

Should my /boot have been HFS?

I can't get to my quik.conf now to verify, since I can't boot,
not even from CD... Not even from my miboot partition!... argh...
