No, I'd rather yaboot or the like if I can get it.

Yes, I had a hard time Googling around for HFS+ in olden times, until I
understood it would never be... at least not so soon.

As I myself stated.

Isn't it quik or ybin for OldWorld?
Thanks for your extensive and considerate answer, but I am none the
wiser. My first problem is getting the machine to do something, be it
booting a floppy, displaying OF or even Mac OS (as a stepping stone to
further GNU happiness). But for some reason the floppy simply is
ignored, I don't know how to display OF here (and my other machine is an
iBook, so I guess I won't be able to see anything with OF serial
output), and Mac OS doesn't seem to like my IBM 8518-2 PS/2 Color
