http://penguinppc.org/bootloaders/quik/quirks.php lists Performa 6400
which ought to be similar to my Performa 5400 and says the following:

    * output-device defaults to ttya
    * output-device screen ONLY works with floppy booting, must use output-device ttya to boot off of SCSI/IDE.
    * load-base may need to be changed to 100000.
    * Internal IDE Drive: boot-device ata/ATA-disk@0:0
    * Note that if linux isn't the first bootable partition on your
    drive, you'll have to specify the partition number in boot-file:
    boot-file ata/ATA-Disk@0:X/vmlinux root=/dev/hdaX (X is partition
    no. of root)

Does quick know of the model-specific quirks mentioned on
http://penguinppc.org/bootloaders/quik/quirks.ph? Is it up to me as an
user to configure OF?

Note that I use Debian version 3.1
Linux emac140 2.6.9-1-686 #1 Thu Nov 25 03:48:29 EST 2004 i686 GNU/Linux
