One way to tell is to look at the default boot device. If you
go to the OF prompt and run the command 'printenv' it will
list all the settings. The default boot device on a New World
machine will be something like hd:,\\:tbxi. On an older box,
it will be something like \AAPL,ROM. If the documentation is
wrong, it should be fixed.
