boot-file should be redunant if you have a proper /etc/quik.conf
though, quik is supposed to find its config file and go from that...

also i have recently found out that beige g3s need the load-base
changed to 0x600000, and generally need the darwin OF patches
installed into nvramrc.  

but DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT change the load-base on any newworld or
OpenFirmware 3.x.x machine!!
