maybe i missed something by why does th kernel version matter here?  i
would think you might need XFree4 but why kernel 2.4test ?

yes, it can be done usually, its somewhat more difficult with oldworld
macs since their OF implementation really sucks.  you need the quik
bootloader.  

to access OF hold down command option o f.  on many oldworld machines
you need to change the output device variable to your video card or
else use a serial terminal (you may have to use  terminal anyway if OF
does not support your video card)
