PowerMacs are sufficiently different to allow for some interesting
things across the whole lineup from the non-OpenFirmware models to
the latest models. The range of models and issues with the
individuals models makes for some interesting goings on, e. g.,
booting OF2 models, actually getting a working kernel going on the
non-OF models, and getting things to run on my particular model, a
450MHz Dual G4 PowerMac.
OS X - UNIX for the rest of us
NetBSD - Catch the Power!
