the same with me, only mine has only 200MHz, and i don't know the
number. Only "PowerStack".

try the kernel on


Phillippe uses it for an rs6000, but it came past my SCSI-Controller,
by using another one. My only problem is: It (and none else i found)
has Net-Support compiled in. Because i _have_ to boot over TFTP/NFS (no
cdrom, no floppy), it can't mount a root-fs.

I don't know a link to a boot-disk which works, but if you get one, please
tell me! I can't manage to compile a powerpc-prep kernel on my x86
box... I even tried modifying another config, but it insisted on being
an x86 in the config, it wouldn't even let me _configure_ fon a
powerpc. So i need someone to get a kernel from. (i think it has a
generic DEC - NIC, according to some web-page i don't remember the URL

hope that helped a little,
