quik on Open Firmware 2.01f trouble

I installed sarge (I think) from the Sven's daily boot floppies at 


Several issues are list-worthy. In this installation, which uses the 
2.6.8-powerpc kernel, quik was sucessfully installed. That's a recent 
improvement over other installs I've tested (iso CD - last weekly, 
netinst CD - this weekly), where quik went by quik, and no success 
message afterward.

This time, after the success message, d-i reported "Setting up Firmware" 
or something, then a warning that the system might not boot, etc., 

I have my Beige G3 set to stop at the OF prompt. After rebooting out of 
stage one of the installation, I simply typed "boot" and got a message, 
I think it was something like, "CAN'T OPEN pci/mac-io/mesh/sd@0:x". x=?
Anyway, I remember from my reading at FreeBSD and penguinppc.org about 
needing to bless the drive with Apple's System Disk unility. So I setenv 
boot-device back to default (/AAPL,ROM), got back into MacOS9 and 
blessed my scsi drive by reconfiguring the PowerUser with manual 
settings for boot-device pci/mac-io/mesh/sd@0:x and changed the boot 
file to /boot/vmlinux-2.6.8-powerpc.


On the OF prompt I typed boot, and got the following:

DEFAULT CATCH!, code=FFF00700 at %SRR0: 003f4000 %SRR1: 00083070

Hey! that's farther than I'd gotten in the last 48 hours! Anybody know 
what's happening here? Should I pass load-base values to the setenv?

I'm still doing the reading, and I'll pay the dues, but I was hoping 
someone would snatch this up and give me a boost.
