Thanks very much -- it solved the problem.  Unfortunately, my kernel
hangs on the ``Welcome to Linux 2.6.8'' screen at the line ``openpic:

Is there any way I can find out what kernel option I've got wrong or is
it better to start again with a known-good config for the
PowerBook5,4?   If anyone else with this machine could send me their
config, it would be much appreciated (I haven't seen any on the sites
mentioned during recently discussed topics on pre-made kernel configs).

bye just now,
