I am now able to "use" open firmware, so I can set various variables
and get the kernel from the tftp-server. But nothing besides it. Also
my machine claims to be a CHRP, not a prep. Well. Do you know how to
set the flags for the kernel, i.e. console=ttyS0,9600 ? Right now, I
am unable to pass them. I read, that 

setenv boot-file flags

would do this (i.e., flags="console=ttyS0,9600") but this variable
gets overridden during the tftp-transmission. 

So the status is in essence: Same as before, but from OF.

When I find time, I continue trying.
