Kernel 2.2.18pre21 from the base2_2.tgz as installed by debian.  OF wouldn't
even load the first stage of Quik.  I gave it the right path, put it kept
failing "cannot open ..."

This was on a Beige g3 and 7200 75Mhz.  I haven't tried the 90 or 120 Mhz 7200s
I have.

Although, 50 MB less and 10 seconds more and I get linux through BootX.

Does bootX have trouble with MacOS 8.0?  It hangs with a black screen when you
try to load kernel during extention loading.  If you wait until the desktop is
loaded, it works fine.  8.5  doesn't have this problem though.
