Hmm. I have a RS6000/250. I think I give it a try the next days.=20
I didn't know that the old MCA machines are "PRePish". port-prep
requires residual data (see panics in prep/machdep.c:initppc()) and
possibly ISA style serial / KBD / VGA IO. I don't have a clue about the
RS6000 MCA architecture. Are there some resources on the net?=20
