quik happily boots a 2.6.18 on a Beige G3 here; you should be able to

i don't have a problem with my beige g3 either, its the earlier power macs
that are still having problems.

get a kernel bigger than 4MB to boot :

on the other hand you may have a point about quik. i don't have
the exact reference for the report so, i don't know, but i do know
there are a listed quik quirks on the linux-ppc pages, so machine dependencies
do create some hassles.

you build this kernel ? how, can you tell please if you did not use stock kernel
what was that about. are you using initrd , or is this a monolithic, eg self-
contained image. ( i know i just said it didn't matter but i can use all
the info i can get, and also i might use my beige to build/ test kernel, even
though my target is the "g2" class).
