Re: [PATCH} Re: www.d.o: PowerPC installation pages need update
This typo goes through all linux for power documentations i've
ever seen. IBM never had a machine called 7044-260. So it should
probably be the 7043-260, which is a power3 machine. And it runs
debian with some diffculties in installation, but it runs.
Doing a google for 7044-260, one gets 87 hit versus 3410 hits for
7043-260. So some seem to have the same typo :-)
