Sorry to disagree : on my G4, I triad many combinations of ofwboot.elf,
and netbsd.RAM.gz (gzipped, de-zipped, renamed, prefixed by "hd:,", by
"hd:N,", by nothing) with no success, ofwboot simply won't load it, and
keeps asking for a kernel.
OTOH, boot.fs loads and boots like a charm, the original 1.5 do have USB
support (but not gm0 ethernet device), and only with that, I was able to
install my G4
No that the machine is installed, I can have another try without
breaking the thing, but I doubt.
