Ok, copying to debian-boot, since this is most relevant there, and to
rick thomas, which  volunteered to help with installation manual. Rick,
this is a boot method on a chrp-rs6k ibm box. I don't know if you are
familiar with these boxes, but just keep this mail until we are ready to
write documentation for it.

Anton, copying you since i was not sure you would read this, and i want
your feedback on the possibility of creating a PReP boot partition.

I know of the existence of the PREP and CHRP flavors of OpenFirmware. I've even had occasion to install a few SGI mips and IBM rs/6k boxes that use them. I don't remember any details (it was a long time ago) so I'll have to rely on other's experiences for anything I put in the PPC manual about them. So: Please provide detailed and clear descriptions of anything you want to get into the user manual.
