thanx you all.... 

the current new-powermac images now boot when load from harddisk via open
firmware and i am able to use my harddrive, this mail is written from
the console of my iBook via ssh to my i386 box at home....

i'm currenty compiling a new kernel to fight XFree86.... the
install-kernel seems to lack dri support (correct me if i'm wrong),
I'm searching for the 'at' sign on my keybord (de) and sometimes root not
found vfs panics, but I think I'll get it working...
