Re: How to install Sarge on RS6000 7044p model 270
A while ago I had some problems installing Debian Sarge on exactly the
same type of RS6000. I solved it eventually in a different way and
posted the howto on www.ifh.ee.ethz.ch/~rharbers/rs6000/rs6000.html.
Hope it works for you, too.

the 7044-270 isn't the same as the 7043-260, but i think it
should work like described here:
And when You boot from OF, please keep in mind to use
backslash instead of slashes, so You have to
instead of "boot cd:,/install/yaboot"
And "cd:" might be wrong also, since RS6000 knows this from
OF as "cdrom:", but You can do a "devalias" to get the "cd:" working.
Yeap, trying with the dir command I found out it only understands cdrom...
As mentioned before, You could do a "devalias" from OF to get the "cd:".
anyways trying to run yaboot the same way:
I get this error msg "Default Catch! code=fff00300....." :(
The machine has its firmware and service processor updated to the latest
so I dont know what may be happening.. :(
IMHO You really have to follow the step by step instructions found in
the above mentionened message.
I think, You will not be able to get this running with the original
