instalation on a tricky 7500/100 with metabox G4
First, the good news. My 7500/100 PowerMac, accelerated with a G4-Card,
only boots with Linux. The BIOS doesn't recognize any harddisk or cd-rom
if the g4-card is plugged, just floppys. Think, it's the OpenFirmware's
fault... (good work, Apple!)
The Basic Debian-System (Woody 3.0r1) is installed, but quik can't be
installed. Don't know why, but installation ends with an error-message:
"Quik installation failed, you can't boot without a bootdisk!"
Fortunately, the debian-installer-program can't create a bootfloppy on
powerpc-machines, you know.
Now my question: Are there any boot-floppy-images (anywhere in the
internet) that can boot my debian-system with the 2.4.18-kernel on
If not, how canI create it myself?
Am I able to mount f. e. the 1st installation floppy on my AMD-PC with
SuSE8.2 (not Mac-System!!!) for editing the boot-variables (kernel,
If yes, how?
Thanks a lot!
