I also changed cd to cdrom in instal/ofboot.b
or is that for mac and the bootinfo.txt file is for IBM?
in the bootinfo.txt file is says:
Where does it get the &device from?
Is that really supposed to be &device semi-colon colon,
or should it be colon comma?
RE yaboot: LFS and Gentoo use yaboot on their cdroms and don't have
yaboot.conf in /etc. The reason I dl'd them was to send as many options
to the vendor to prove that Linux boots. Why does debian's yaboot need
it in /etc? Is it compiled that way?
Thanks for your patience on this; I'm trying to boot a computer I've
never seen via a non-unix non-linux vendor prior to shipping it.
