Yes, that was something, I see first when I visited the darwin home and what 
embittered me. Hope that they would change this policy in the way to mklinux.

Well, that's what I'm looking for, but not as alternative more as a 
supplement to Linux.

I'm using an old Powerbook 1400c and it is not well supported by any 
Linux-Distribution. Some Hackers were needed, who made the MediaBay-CD-ROM 
PCMCIA and SCSI is not working and sound too.
So, my idea was to look around, if others had more success to get an unix 
based system running on this powerbook, or if not perhaps some components.
