    FWIW, the root.bin from boot-floppies works fine for me an a different 
kernel than it was built for (the one in the LinuxPPC Q4 CD installer).  I 
used this to work around the fact that my PPC machine is really flaky ATM.  
You can't, of course, load any modules.

    So I bootable CD for oldworld machines isn't possible, eh?  S'funny, I 
have one right here.
