I should have said as the cd is non bootable on this particular

sure the cd is bootable, I succesfully install a pismo, an iMac, a G3
with this CD.

it seem's that 2.4.x boots the Titanium, I'll continue this morning.

unfortumatly i wasn't able to boot this powerbook from the cd even while
holding the 'C' key at startup (which is the `secret key combo' to boot
from the CD since a while on PowerMacs) nor using yaboot.

I've compiled the 2.4.2 on an iMac, and I'll grab it to the Titanium
into a few minutes....

sure the hardware is different, the most inportant is to use the good
options for .config
