Re: open power 710 install

Thanks Sven,

I will try the new installer on Monday.

But here is a little hint I found after chrooted what I have installed :
cfdisk was available in order to produce a prep partition and
yabootconfig runned very fine.
In order to boot from disk the sms console waits for a prep partition on
one disk...
