Well, tht's something I look forward to, but it isn't easy. I have to boot
Linux with mklinux. I didn't get Yabbot running on my PowerPC. Perhaps it is
to old, because it supports no OpenFirmware as example.
I thought more, to port some features to Linux PowerPC...

Yes, I did. They do not support my Powerbook either. And as far as I
remember the community around NetBSD is not as big as the community around
LinuxPPC. I'm the oppinion that it is much more difficult to hack on BSD
than on Linux, and they are much slower developing and including new
features than the Linux people.
I found another port of an UNIX based OS. BeOS is also port to the PowerPC,
but even not to older ones.
