 Great. Thanks.

 I've hit another minor glitch ;-) I selected "macintosh", "uk"
 keyboard and accepted all the defaults (standard not USB) - should it
 be "macintosh_old"? because install has asked me to confirm that
 /etc/CORBA/server/GnomeICU.gnorba should be overwritten.  Pressing Y
 gave q and backspace returned , (several times ;-))

 Also I'm now in a quandary - do I break install and start again
 because I can't move forward?

 Thanks for your patience and persistence ;-)

Here's what happened:


If you boot with keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1, you should be able to
resurrect your install. To try to shut it down gracefully, refer to the
web page.
Ooops - so much for planning ahead ;-)

In the web page it refers to adding keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1 in quik.conf or yaboot.conf neither of which I use. Do I put this in the lilo.conf (MacOS) file after rootdev=?

Also I'm still stuck in the install so can't issue shutdown or edit anything (gracefully or otherwise)?
