Re: No Hard drive found error with mac-fdisk in install PPC debian


Here's my problem and I search on this list and I did not find
anything about this issue. But I find a way to solve it I just get the
2.4 Kernel precompiled from ppckernel.org I extracted it and I rename
the 2.4 kernel as linux.bin and everything is working find.

By the way nice doc and thanks for supporting it ;)
