woohoo, i found it all myself ...
i downloaded the kernel-image .deb from ftp and dpkg -x extracted it to a
directory then got the hfsutils formated a disk and hcopy'ed the coff file
to the disk

as i cant seem to get into OF, i used the bootvariables program to

 fd:vmlinux.coff-2.2.18pre21 video=atyfb:vmode:12

like i was told to, and also changed OF input and output to kbd and screen,
and rebooted,

first i got some white flickering on the screen (i think that was the OF,
but it doesnt want to display ... is there a setting i can change for that
? ) and then it started reading the floppy, that kernel, but still nothing
than a black screen, also after it has done reading from the floppy, nothing
than black ....

any idea ?
