Well, I'm happy to test things!
Actually, the linuxppc folks have a boot floppy working. Actually, it
seems all you have to do is take a mac-formatted floppy, stuff
g3installer.coff on it, and then boot that. So a mini-rooted kernel is all
I.E. if you or someone else can put kernels up for test, I can download
then and give them a try. If only the kernel's needed, then we don't need
this disk image stuff. :-)
Though the different mmu problem Jason mentioned'd be a snag. :-(
