Probably the same or similar ADB to the Quadras.  In fact, I wouldn't
be surprised if there was a similar setup in the machines from the
VX on up (but of course I haven't verified this...).

I don't think the PowerMacLinux people are as far as all that.  I would be
VERY impressed and suspect that they either traced the ROMS, are running
in MacOS like MacMiNT, or have some hook into Apple's PPC development

If they are really about to make an Alpha release, then I will have to
start scouring my budget for about $2500...

 '1' means a BLACK pixel, '1' means button UP, what will Apple think of next?
