wBoot works flawlessly on the four machines where I use it. :^>

I also just transcribe it from the web page (no, I do not use
blackslashes, no you don't need to, no I don't know why they're
listed on that other page), typing it by hand in nvedit every damn
time. (Actually, I managed to remember to do this by whacking
SystemDisk with ResEdit before I blew MacOS away about once--a
somewhat easier approach, if less tactile.)

I also use it exclusively on OpenFirmware 1.0.5 machines.

None of my OF 2.x machines require a delayed boot. Yours does?
