woody bootfroppies, mac 7200/90, quik problem
i try to install woody on the given powermac with the latest
bootfloppies. I chose the powermac flavor, and that kernel boots
nicely and works, if booted from floppy.
the baseinstalls fails with a debootstap error, so i chroot into
/target and continue the install from there, on the commandline
with dpkg and apt. looks fine so far.
i do not manage to make the system bootable from harddisk,
however. i try to use quik like this:
/target/sbin/quik -r /target -C /target/etc/quik.conf -v
and the output seems fine to me.
i tried to install both the kernel-image-2.4.18-pmacnew and
-powerpc. but normally the system does not even try to boot the
kernel, as far as i can tell. i guess this is a quik issue.
Here is my quik.conf
## This file generated during installation.

## Do not point image= to a symlink, quik can't follow symlinks

my guess is that the firmware is not playing along. what do i need
to do to get this booting from harddisk?
