Re: ibook 2000 kernel config, install config

I installed onto my Grey/White 1999iBook from the net using Branden's 
instructions (http://people.debian.org/~branden/ibook). I immediately went to 
sid though.

After installation of a kernel, it's in /boot/config-2.4.19-powerpc, or in the 
kernel-headers in /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.4.20/.config

I'd read something to that effect in lwn. More experimental things are going 
on in ext2 nowadays, but I believe that's in 2.5, not 2.4. However, ext3 is 
supposed to be quite nice.

You can just mount an hfs partition. I wouldn't recommend msdos though! Also, 
I've read that hfs+ support in the kernel is coming along as well!
