No, but I'm not on a mac. But have you tried both answers to just about
the first question in the installation process, namely colour or B&W?
In view of your previous posting, maybe this is a silly reply...


Subject: B&W vs color, bsd vs linux 

Do I understand this correctly?

netBSD will boot only in B&W on the 68Kmac, while DebianLinux will boot 
in color??? Is that correct?


BTW I boot debian in a text mode and have not seen it boot in colour.
I don't know if macs have a text mode as I've only seen MacOS.
