Yes, that's what I have read so far in the accompanying doc (on the apple

Chris T.: But, you are maintaining the
yaboot docs, you should know something about Ethan maybe.. ;)
Chris T.: PS: I think you have done a very good job regarding the installation section
on the port pages!! Congratulations!
