iBook2 Sarge 20040330 NetInst problems


Following Sven's advice I'm trying to install using the latest and
greatest netinst installer from the daily builds. I'm installing on an
800Mhz G3 iBook. Everything goes fairly smoothly during the install,
although one has to ^C various things during the process to get back to
the main installer menu. (I've got a few notes if anyone wants them.)

I've installed 3 times and have experienced the same problem each time.
Yaboot cannot see the vmlinux link to the installed kernel. My partition
table is like this:

    #9  bootstrap
    #10 /boot
    #11 swap
    #12 /

vmlinux is on 12, pointing to the powerpc image on 10. yaboot.conf seems
fine, but when I tried to run ybin from /target I wasn't clever enough
to work out all the paths etc.

The error from yaboot 1.3.11:
/pci@f2000000/mac-io@17/ata-4@1f000/disk@0:12,/vmlinux: No such file or directory

Installer info:
Sarge - Official NetInst Snapshot powerpic Binary-1 (20040330)

Thanks for any help,
