Uh...you don't need BootVars. BootX (what version are you running?) should be 
just fine. I don't know (or remember) right off the top what parameters you 
should use to go with BootX, but the only ones I can think of relate to video 
(for me, since I run with a voodoo3 card)...I'm sure someone can point out 
the correct things to put into your parameters.

That's odd...I know that Linux is more sensitive with bad hardware than the 
Mac OS is...perhaps you should try a different kernel?
