Here's my results from a Performa 5400 (24 MB RAM): 2006-05-15: Boot ends with Instruction dump: 7c0000a6 ....... ....... .......

The root image also works good, until hw-detection. Doesn't find my ide disk. ~ # ls /lib/modules/2.6.16-1-powerpc-miboot/kernel/drivers base ieee1394 net scsi No ide here! I found the ide drivers on the cd-drivers.img. That should be documented somewhere, since a net-install will fail without hd-support. Also after loading the net-drivers.img the installer failed to detect my ethernet "de2104x PCI". I tried to load tulip dc21x4x manually but it failed. This was still an interesting test, since I have not been able to boot 2.6.16 on this machine, but that must be a problem with the initrd created by initramfs (or possibly something with the way quik boots) -- Hans Ekbrand (http://sociologi.cjb.net) <email@example.com> A.
