I have to go through "Command-Option-o-f", that is OpenFirmware. Then I have to enter "boot cd:,\boot\yaboot" to get to yaboot. I have yet to see an image that boots with "c".

Not sure the kernel or initrd fit on a floppy though. Could you help me with that? I neither have the hardware nor the experience.

Well, and a link from the -chrp kernel to the -chrp-rs6k maybe. > And, please include partimage if it is not already, it is a very usefull > tool for backuping/restoring partitions.
