the IBM 7248-133 (43P) Power PC is a 'prep' machine
and only boots from an IBM partition
load a image 'zImage.prep' to SDA1 and load
the linux software (root) on to an another
partition (SDA3) SDA2 is swap in my
power on the PC and it boots.
rebuilding sarge with the latest sarge kernel and
proper config builds a zImage.prep
it is a kernel(vmlinuz) and a (boot) loader, there
is no grub or yaboot involved.
it 'runs' just find, mail and apache2 work
with etch no such image is built, at least I have
not found it.
searched the source tree for zImage.prep, and none
any more ideas?

installing new firmware from IBM.
