I now read
http://sdb.suse.de/sdb/en/html/olh_ppc_netboot.html

http://www.alaska.net/~erbenson/doc/netboot.html

http://www.soziologie.ch/users/steinlin/d-i/

So I would set up a bootp-server, and a tftp-server and would drop all
kernel releated files into the latter, skipping yaboot.conf. Is this
correct?

Next I would run from OF
boot network root=/... console=...

What would I place into root? Also am I strictly limited to serial
console? (i.e., is it possible to have some kind of framebuffer after
booting for local keyboard based access?)

Thanks!

       Helge
