I didn't try that installer. Both my PowerMacs are using yaboot, I
haven't tried grub/ieee1275.
yaboot works well and is well documented, so it should be okay either way.

If by 'G5 type units' you mean powermacs, then yes. When I tracked down my bug,
I did check the newest kernel at the time, and the bug was still here :-(

If you mean another type of machine using ppc970, I'd like to know the
result as well.
