howto create boot-floppy-hfs.img for oldworld macs ?
I got an Apple Powermac 4400 and want to create a bootfloppy with a custom
kernel for it but I fail.
I manage to build a debian kernel package on another ppc machine with
make-kpgg, but the vmlinux which is built is to big for a floppy:
3218566 2004-02-20 23:12:32 ./boot/vmlinux-2.4.23-ben1
1077339 2004-02-20 23:12:32 ./boot/vmlinux.coff-2.4.23-ben1
What is that vmlinux.coff ?
Then I use hcopy from package hfsutils to copy kernel on woodys
When I boot the 4400 I see an image of a mac overlapped with the pinguin ;-)
but after the disk is read the screen becomes black and the logo inverted.
(The original boot-floppy-hfs.img-floppy boots the kernel just fine but
chrashes when trying to mount the root filesystem.)
Sometimes the logo get crossed by a red "X", what does that mean ?
Then I tried building a kernel with "make bzImage" but neither of these files

How can a build a boot-floppy for an oldworld mac ?
thank you very much for your help!
And btw, I volunteer to help test debian-installer on oldwolrd-macs, too. But
there are no boot floppies yet, does anybody know wether someone is working
on them ?
