the machines is known under many different names... it's called Motorola
Powerstack 604e most of the time... There exist two versions of it one with
PPCBug firmware and one with OpenFirmware (which I have) as far as i know
you can flash the firm and so change from PPCBug<->OpenFirmware... On PPCBug
ones you can use Yaboot but i'm not completely sure...
