How do I get rid of that, I dont know how it got there???!!!

All I did was changing that append= line in yaboot.conf ...

Im just trying to get the video card working. Before I added that append 
option I had problems watching videos... I had those vertical stripes in the 
Now I have those crashes... and this ATY, Jasper stuff ;) 

Since xorg.conf was modified to self-detecting and kms was implemented I dont 
have any more idea, how to get the videocard to work properly.

Where can I change things? Which files are relevant?
Which append lines in yaboot.conf are default for this powerbook?

please help
