ibook didn't detect hard drive
I just recently got a new ibook G4 with an 80gb hard drive. I have
created the HFS partition for the four file(yaboot, yaboot.conf,
root.bin, linux.bin) hard drive boot. I used those files to boot the
ibook using Open Frimware. Once the installer os boots up it fails to
detect the hard drive. Instead it puts the cdr/cdrom drive on hda. I
have googled on this subject and it seems the Slackintosh has the same
problem. I have included the link.
Judging by the discussion it seems the kernel needs to be rebuilt.
Before I dive into the process I was hoping someone knew the exact
details of the kernel options needed to detect the new ibook hard
drive? I am also going to have to look up information on how to change
either root.bin or linux.bin to the new kernel. I know how to build
kernels I just don't know how to build a kernel that will be used for
installation, and I don't know where to put it.
P.S. I am not on the list so could you CC me your replys
