Well, don't. Apparently this page is ways outdated, use this instead :


burn it to a CD, insert it in the drive, boot with 'c' key hold down, type
enter at the yaboot prompt and follow instructions.

Hi James.

On powerpc 2.4 kernels have been obsoleted since around 2-3 years ago or so,
and even before that most work was already been done in 2.6.

The 2.6 kernels have full powerpc support, and all the work benh does goes
there directly.

Please use current, it should have all you need.

Don't reading web pages that where probably out-dated 3 years ago :)
