I have never heard about pmac_defconfig, sorry. I read several (5 ?)
web pages about installing on ibook, and also the Debian powerpc-port
pages, where it is not mentioned.

I just read some posts on this list -- pmac_defconfig creates a default
configuration for a machine, correct? Is there some good FAQ for this
and other "specialities" of the PPC plattform? 

Btw. I found at least one kernel help text a little confusing. Are you
the right person to send this to?
