Here's my results from a Performa 5400 (24 MB RAM):

2006-05-15: Boot ends with Instruction dump:
7c0000a6 ....... ....... ....... [ a lot of numbers in two lines]

2006-05-14: not tested (suspected the same problem as with 06-05-15)

2006-05-13: Boots OK (didn't put out the floppy automatically though,
I had to use a paperclip to get it out). 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

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)
