Hi Sven. I thought I'd give that kernel a try. I don't netboot, put I
wrote that kernel to my second harddisk and booted from it. In summary,
it boots, but it doesn't seem to include the pcnet32 driver. Since every
single RS6000 "offical" ethernet card that I've ever seen uses pcnet32,
I'd say its important to include it in the initrd.
I've included the boot log up to when it went full screen. After that
it failed to detect my ethernet card and gave me a list of drivers to
try, which did not include pcnet32.
